Abhishek Bachchan Has Just Left This Director’s Multi-Starrer Movie
Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who was last seen in Housefull 3 in 2016 has opt out of JP Dutta’s Paltan and that too, just 24 hours before the unit was supposed to leave for the first schedule. Abhishek has made his debut in bollywood with J P Dutta’s “Refugee” and they both have worked together in LOC Kargil and Umrao Jaan as well.
However, earlier Abhishek himself showed his excitement of working in Paltan, when he tweeted, “Brother to my left, brother to my right. Together we stand. Together we fight! I’m part of the PALTAN, are you? #jpdutta #JaiHind.”

The movie which is based on the 1962 Indo-China war has a quite long list of actors, comprising of Suniel Shetty, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Pulkit Samrat, Siddhanth Kapoor, Jimmy Sheirgill, Jackie Shroff, Luv Sinha and Gurmeet Chaudhary.
The unit has already started the shooting of the movie but this news was quite a shock for all the crew, Nidhi Dutta, daughter of J P Dutta confirms the news of Abhishek’s exit,
“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 endeavours. 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.”
Abhishek has cited personal reasons for leaving Paltan but what do you think could be the main reason for him walking out from this project?
