Sushant Singh Rajput took to Twitter to announce his upcoming film Romeo Akbar Walter or RAW. I must admit, the two posters of the film are intriguing AF. Both the posters has Sushant’s character on it. And reveals that the film is based around the backdrop of 1971 war, with the caption, “Our Hero? Their Spy?” and the poster claims to be inspired by true events.
While the posters of the film are intriguing, it is the caption that reminds me of Emraan Hashmi’s upcoming film based on similar theme, Captain Nawab. The reason is simple, even in that poster Emraan’s character was seen in half Pakistani army’s and half Indian army’s uniform, with caption, “Two Countries One Soldier”.
Both the films are still in pre-production and there is a possibility that both have completely different storylines but these similarities can’t be ignored. Also read: IT’S OVER between Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon- Read details here
