Also starring Mouni Roy, Jackie Shroff and Sikandar Kher in supporting roles, Romeo Akbar Walter is set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. Actress-singer Suchitra Krishnamoorthi also made her comeback into films with RAW. She was last seen in the 2010 film Mittal VS Mittal with Gulshan Grover and Rituparna Sengupta. The film is directed by Robby Grewal.

RAW focuses on the story behind this war from the point of view of India’s intelligence agency. Critics have compared the film to last year's blockbuster spy thriller, Raazi.

RAW is produced by Dheeraj Wadhwan, Ajay Kapoor, Vanessa Walia and Gary Grewal. The film is John's second collaboration with producer Ajay Kapoor following the critical and commercial success of Kapoor's first production, Paramanu: The Story of Pokhran.
