In the upcoming spy thriller RAW (Romeo Akbar Walter), John Abraham plays Rehmatulla Ali aka Romeo, an average guy with a regular bank job. His unique ability to blend into any environment gets him noticed by RAW and changes his life forever.
Speaking about the role, John Abraham says, “Romeo Akbar Walter is one of the most challenging films of my career. Apart from the multiple looks, I had to understand each character individually. Robbie (Grewal, director) was clear on how each character would be presented and his inputs made it easy for me. Romeo is probably the character that’s closest to me. He is just like all of us. What makes him different is his choice to sacrifice his identity to protect the nation.”
The makers of the film recently released a new song, Bulleya, featuring Rabbi Shergill and Shahid Mallya, which also introduces Romeo’s character to the audience. The song is composed by Sohail Sen
