Abhishek Bachchan Exits Paltan!
This comes as a shock to many people, especially the team of ‘Paltan’ who were expecting to work with Abhishek Bachchan. It has been announced that Abhishek has left the project because of some personal reasons. The movie is being directed by JP Dutta who has previously worked with AB Jr. in ‘Refugee’, ‘Umrao Jaan’ and 'LOC Kargil’.
Dutta's daughter Nidhi Dutta made the announcement and said, “Abhishek Bachchan is no longer part of Paltan for personal reasons best known to him. It has come as a shock to us as this happened less than 24 hours before our unit left to shoot in Ladakh. But we also believe that; especially in the movies we make, it's the soldiers sitting up there that choose who will play them and recreate their lives on screen. Nevertheless, we wish him luck in his future endeavors. We are already in Ladakh filming with our entire cast and crew and Army personnel. We will announce the actor who is replacing Abhishek in the film soon”.
The cast for ‘Paltan’ includes Arjun Rampal, Suniel Shetty, Pulkit Samrat, Sonu Sood, Siddhanth Kapoor and others. The movie has been based on the 1960’s Indo-China war. It will hit the screens sometime next year. Also, Abhishek’s exit might hamper the team’s schedule so there might be a delay in the release.
