Sushant Singh Rajput walks out of ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’!

The first look of Sushant Singh Rajput-starrer ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ was launched amid much fanfare earlier this year. But, last month there were reports hinting at the film getting postponed. The reason behind this delay was apparently the actor who had allotted his dates to his other projects, ‘Drive’, ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ and ‘Kedarnath’. And today, latest updates might make Sushant’s fans out there sad. The actor has walked out of the film.

He confirmed the news stating, “Unfortunately, I will not be part of ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ due to changes in my prior commitments. I wanted to be part of the project because I love the story, and believe it must be told, but, that will not happen.” (Also Check: PICS: Sushant and Sara head to Dehradun to begin shooting for ‘Kedarnath’)

Apparently, Sushant was paid a signing amount of Rs 4 crore for the film, which he will be returning for obvious reasons.

A trade source has been quoted by a tabloid saying, “The script (of ‘RAW’) is powerful, and could have been be a turning point in Sushant’s career. He requested Ajay (producer Ajay Kapoor) to give him time to sort out the schedule conflict. Sushant wanted to shoot for his films over 15-day schedules, but, Ajay felt it would affect the continuity. He wanted two 30-day schedules to complete Romeo, but that wasn’t possible for the actor.”

Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput is all set to start shooting for his next film ‘Kedarnath’ along with debutante Sara Ali Khan in Dehradun by the end of this week. He will be reuniting with director Abhishek Kapoor for this one after their previous film ‘Kai Po Che!’ (2013), which was the actor’s debut film as well.
