Did You Know What Akshay Kumar's Rustom Is Really All About?
Anasuya Ray ChaudhuriGuest Contributor
After Airlift, in yet another power-packed performance, Akshay Kumar brings to life the character of Rustom Pavri, a commander with the Indian Navy. Based on a true story, this is a movie about how love and betrayal eventually changed how the criminal court system in India actually works! Because this respected naval officer, on discovering that his wife (played by Ileana D’Cruz) was having an affair, killed her lover and confessed to it. The case was tried in court, and Pavri’s defence of his actions was so moving that he was declared “Not guilty” by a jury. But that’s not where it ended, for the Bombay High Court decided to overturn the verdict…
Not only is this a movie about a historic criminal trial, but also one of deeply human passions - love, betrayal, jealousy, rage… the ULTIMATE drama. Watch the Rustom trailer now, and we bet you’ll be waiting for this movie as eagerly as we are!
