The film also stars Jackie Shroff, Mouni Roy, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and Sikandar Kher. It is collaboratively produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, KYTA Productions and VA Film Company.
Initially, Romeo Akbar Walter was supposed to star Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead, but citing other commitments, the actor backed out in 2017. It was later announced that John will take over the role, who later made an official announcement on his Twitter. 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.
Shot across several locations like Gujarat, Nepal and Kashmir, Romeo Akbar Walter is slated to release on 12 April.
Subhash Ghai on Madhuri Dixit, Manisha Koirala, Mahima Chaudhry: 'Not one of them has kept in touch with me'
Ghai says his male actors have stayed connected with him. "Whether it is Anupam Kher, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan or Sanjay Dutt...they’ve stayed in touch. The male actors have given me respect, the female actors have not."
Pathaan movie review: Shah Rukh Khan zips around a slick, addictive version of the Akshay Kumar universe
Pathaan is so much fun when it’s being fun – especially with a smashing Salman Khan cameo – that it is tempting to overlook its play-it-safe politics.
Pathaan is a richly referential rollercoaster ride. Archvillain John Abraham playing Gym…sorry Jim and Shah Rukh as Pathaan (that’s all he called) play against one another with sparkling bonhomie.
