For the first time in the history of Bollywood, a film was screened before the film’s release for the officers of RAW and their families. The film ‘Romeo Akbar Walter- RAW’ was specially screened for Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) chief Anil Kumar Dhasmana and a host of other RAW officers.
The film is based on an Indian spy agent ‘Romeo’ who carries out his mission in Pakistan occupied Kashmir under the name Akbar, but somehow gets caught. John Abraham is playing the male lead of the film.
Actor Jackie Shroff, who was present at the screening with Writer-director Robbie Grewal, informed, “My film is a tribute to these officers and so, it was a surreal experience to show my film to them. It was equally gratifying to have RAW officers and their families walk up to you to acknowledge and appreciate the effort put in the film. One of the most fulfilling experiences was to meet the chief of RAW and interact with him. I was overwhelmed with the warm reception to us and the film.”
‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ is produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Dheeraj Wadhwan, Ajay Kapoor, Vanessa Walia, and Gary Grewal. It was released Worldwide on 12th April 2019.
