Robbie Grewal directorial Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW), featuring John Abraham, Sikander Kher, Mouni Roy and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles, is a tribute to spies.

At the film’s trailer launch, Robbie revealed why he made RAW.

“It’s been a fantastic journey. The reason for making this film was that all of us want to be recognised for what we do. But someone who works so much for the nation but gets no recognition is a spy. The film is a tribute to them,” said the director.

Robbie Grewal also added, “The film is not about good vs bad. It’s not about we are good and they (Pakistan) are bad.”
