The duo was all set to reunite for their fourth film together, Paltan, a multi-starrer war drama, set against the backdrop of the Indo-China conflict. However, everyone was baffled when Abhishek walked out of Paltan at the last moment, leaving the makers hanging in the balance.

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the film is all set to release on the 7th of September, 2018. But wait, that also happens to be the release date of J.P. Dutta’s Paltan.
