Here is some bad news for Sushant Singh Rajput fans, who hoped to see him as a spy in Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW). The actor has reportedly walked out of the ambitious project which was announced in March this year.

According to Filmfare, Sushant has opted out of the film. The actor was very excited to play the role of a RAW agent and the film was based on true events in the life of an Indian spy. Sushant had given it a nod and the producers had splashed his face on the first poster of the film which was published in leading newspapers.

But everything changed when Sushant got to know that rights of the film do not belong to the makers but to filmmaker Rajkumar Gupta. The actor reportedly did not want to invest his time and energy in a project which may find itself in a copyrights tangle and decided to opt out of the film.

Despite this setback, Sushant has his plate full right now. He is currently shooting for Kedarnath, the film which will mark Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan’s Bollywod debut. Sushant will be seen playing a pithoo, a man who makes a living by carrying old and disabled pilgrims to the temple of Kedarnath.

Kedarnath, produced by KriArj (Prerna Arora and Arjun N Kapoor) and Balaji (Ekta Kapoor), will be shot in the area around the famous temple in Uttarakhand.

Sushant worked hard to bulk up so that he can convincingly play a pithoo on screen. Interestingly the actor has been prepping for two films, Kedarnath and Chanda Mama Door Ke too which are incredibly diverse from each other. In Chanda Mama he plays an astronaut.
