Earlier, Raabta actor Sushant Singh Rajput was to star in the film. He even shared the first poster of the film that featured him. However due to certain "unavoidable circumstances," he quit the project. In an earlier interview, Sushant told news agency IANS: "I wanted to be a part of the project because I love the story and I believe it's a story which must be told. However, due to unavoidable circumstances I won't be a part of this journey. I wish the producers all the very best for the project."
Besides Romeo Akbar Walter, John Abraham also has Nikkhil Advani's Batla House, which will release on August 15 next year. John Abraham was last seen in Satyameva Jayate.
