His last film Raabta (2017) sank without a trace at the box office, but Sushant Singh Rajput has many offers regardless. Apparently, the star of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016) has his plate full and so has opted out of Gippy Grewal’s spy thriller Romeo Akbar Walter. Rajput is said to have returned the signing amount for the film.
"Unfortunately, I will not be part of Romeo Akbar Walter due to changes in my prior commitments," the actor told the website Mid-day.com. "I wanted to be part of the project because I love the story and believe it must be told, but that will not happen.”
Rajput is currently filming for Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. Besides, he is scheduled to begin his preparation for Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan’s sci-fi film Chanda Mama Door Ke. Apart from these films, the actor has Drive in his lineup and he has also given his nod for Abhishek Chaubey’s untitled film that is set in the Chambal valley.
The success of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story had led to Rajput being chased by many filmmakers. The actor had also signed up for Shekhar Kapur’s Paani, but that project has not taken off.
