Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who announced that he is going to be a part of J P Dutta's next venture Paltan, has walked out of the movie just 24 hours before the team left to shoot in Ladakh, reported Indian Express. The 41-year-old actor, who made his Bollywood debut with J P Dutta's 2000 movie Refugee and later starred in his films like LOC Kargil and Umrao Jaan, has quit the project for reasons unknown. Talking to Indian Express, the film's producer Nidhi Dutta said that the news came as a 'shock' to them. "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," Indian Express quoted Nidhi Dutta as saying.

Producer Nidhi Dutta wished Abhishek Bachchan luck in his future endeavors and said the makers of the film will soon announce the actor who will be replacing Abhishek in the film.

"We 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. 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," Indian Express quoted Nidhi Dutta as saying.

In June, Abhishek Bachchan shared the poster of Paltan on Twitter with the caption that read, "Brother to my left, brother to my right. Together we stand. Together we fight! I'm part of the PALTAN, are you? #jpdutta #JaiHind."

Paltan stars Suniel Shetty, Sonu Sood, Rana Daggubati, Pulkit Samrat, Siddhanth Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Gurmeet Choudhary in lead roles. The film is scheduled to release in theatres next year.

Abhishek Bachchan was last seen in 2016 movie Housefull 3.
