Abhishek Bachchan buries the hatchet with JP Dutta after 'Paltan' trailer launch


After a long hiatus, filmmaker JP Dutta is back with another war film, Paltan. The trailer of the multi-starrer, featuring Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Chaudhary, Luv Sinha, Harshvardhan Rane and Siddhant Kapoor, was launch on Thursday.

The film had grabbed a lot of headlines earlier after Abhishek Bachchan, who was approached for the film, walked out of it just a few hours before the shoot. Abhishek's sudden change of plan obviously left everyone shocked because the actor had himself given a nod to the film. His role later went to Harshvardhan Rane in the upcoming film.

Moreover, at the trailer launch event, when JP Dutta was quizzed about Abhishek's exit, he seemed miffed and said, “Please talk to Bachchans as I don’t know what exactly happened and what went wrong.” Now just after a day after the trailer launch, Abhishek has attempted to bury the hatchet with the filmmaker by tweeting Paltan's trailer. He was all praised for JP Dutta and said that he is back at "doing what he does best…. Making us proud!"

Now we wonder what the filmmaker, who launched Abhishek in his film Refugee, has to say about it.

Meanwhile, Paltan is set in 1967 when Indian soldiers had to protect Nathula Pass in Sikkim from China. The trailer has met with a fabulous response from both audience and critics alike. One look at the trailer is enough to suggest that JP Dutta’s film is certainly an action-packed and quintessential war film, more like an extension to his previous films. Interestingly, Paltan also wraps the trilogy of Dutta’s war films.

The film also marks the Bollywood debut of Sonakshi Sinha’s sibling Luv and Television star Dipika Kakkar. Other than its leading men, Paltan also features Esha Gupta, Sonal Chauhan, Monica Gill. Paltan is produced by JP Films and Zee Studios and is slated to release on September 7, 2018.
