The makers of Romeo, Akbar, Walter (RAW) dropped the official trailer of the film online on Monday. John, as described in the trailer of the film, is a spy and a hero and has many faces but his mission is to protect the country.

Based on true events, RAW is set in 1971 as the trailer begins with Jackie Shroff’s character briefing John about a mission that he must sign up for in order to serve his country.

In the next few seconds, we get a glimpse of how John's character preps up to be a spy. The trailer includes generous shots of Abraham's transformation from a simple, Muslim man into an Indian intelligence agent.

As state governments intensify crackdowns in the 1970s, Romeo Akbar Walter emerges to showcase real-life events. Jackie Shroff plays John Abraham's senior in the film and Sikander Kher plays a Pakistani cop who makes John's life living hell.

Considering it is coming at a time of the heated Indo-Pak tension, we are sure it will instantly invoke the feeling of patriotism in the hearts and minds of every Indian.

John had earlier said that he will sport eight different looks in the film as per the demand of the script. “I will play everything from an 85-year-old man to a 26-year-old and this is the most challenging role of my life. I get good nervous energy when I am prepping for a difficult film and RAW is in that space.”
