The trailer, which crossed 2.5 million views online within two days of its release, portrays Ranbir as the lead. However, the actor has a short role in the film.

The sources say the first look of 'Roy' has not gone down well with Ranbir Kapoor. The actor, who has a short role in the film, is unhappy that the makers are promoting it as a regular RK-starrer.

Ranbir, who even declined to attend the trailer launch, has decided neither  promoting the film nor speaking to the media regarding it.

“Roy is essentially an Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez film but the way it is being projected giving Ranbir unwanted prominence in the posters is funny. In fact, it is misleading. Ranbir has not spoken about the film which is a tell-tale sign,” says a source.

Ranbir is said to have taken up the project as the director Vikramjit Singh is his childhood friend. The actor, however, chose not to respond on this issue.

The film in which Ranbir essays the role of a thief is slated to release in February next year.
