Sushant Singh Rajput's Romeo Akbar Walter kept on hold to make way for Kedarnath?

While it was earlier reported that actor Sushant Singh Rajput is all set to start working on his 2018 film Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW) which is being helmed by Robbie Grewal, it now seems the film's schedule has been pushed back for some time. Reason? Rajput's other project with director Abhishek Kapoor, Kedarnath, reports DNA.

In March, Rajput had shared the first look of his character from the film in his Twitter posts:

The DNA report further suggests that Rajput has assigned his dates that had been earlier booked for Grewal's RAW, for Kedarnath, which will feature Rajput along with debutante Sara Ali Khan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh.

This will be Rajput's second project with Abhishek Kapoor after his debut film Kai Po Che (2013). According to a report by india.com, the plot of Kedarnath revolves around a loves story set against the backdrop of a pilgrimage; maybe that's why it is named 'Kedarnath'. There is also speculation that Rajput will essay the role of a dacoit and Sara his lover.

Meanwhile, almost confirming this development, RAW co-producer Bunty Walia told DNA, "The dates may get shifted to accommodate Kedarnath. It’s a great script and the project is backed by a big business house. There is no shortage of funds, so no reason to not do the film, unless we ourselves decide to pull the plug after the dates are shifted."

Robby Grewal has previously helmed projects like MP3 — Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar, Aloo Chaat and Samay — When Time Strikes.
