Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the studio synonymous for pathbreaking and immensely entertaining content like DRISHYAM, MADRAS CAFE, TOILET EK PREM KATHA and PADMAAVAT; and the soon to be released MANTO & ANDHADHUN has now teamed with KYTA Productions for its upcoming espionage thriller, ROMEO AKBAR WALTER (RAW). The John Abraham starrer will now release on 15th March 2019.
John Abraham says, “I’m thrilled that Viacom18 Motion Pictures has now come on board for RAW. Having worked with them in the past, I know we have the right partners for the film. RAW was a challenging film, it was a first for me to have so many looks which required playing each one differently from stance to movement to speech, I really had a great time pushing myself to new boundaries, and much credit to my director Robbie for this. Audiences have been so kind to me this year, I’m hoping this will continue with RAW."
Ajit Andhare – COO, Viacom18 Studios, says, “RAW is a gripping espionage drama, with an inimitable perspective from the viewpoint of the astute director Robbie Grewal, that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Collaborating with Ajay Kapoor as a partner has been a pleasure and with John in lead, you can be assured of a treat.”
Ajay Kapoor – Producer and Managing Director, KYTA Productions, adds, “I am happy to join hands with Viacom18 Motion Pictures. After associating for BAAZAAR, we just knew we had to extend our partnership for RAW as well, as they match our enthusiasm in putting this passion project together”
RAW, based on true incidents is directed by debutante Robbie Grewal. The film starring John Abraham, Jackie Shroff, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Mouni Roy and Sikander Kher is produced by Dheeraj Wadhwan, Ajay Kapoor, Vanessa Walia, and Gary Grewal.
