After 'Airlift', Akshay Kumar is all set to don an intense avatar for Neeraj Pandey's 'Rustom' which is touted to be a romantic thriller with plenty of twists and turns.
There were several speculations doing rounds that this film is based on the 1959 Nanavati case where naval officer Kavas Maneckshaw Nanavati was tried for the murder of his wife's lover, Prem Ahuja.
When we spoke to Akshay about the film, the actor without divulging more details about the film said, " 'Rustom' has already started. I am going to join it in about 15 days. This is a story which I heard and liked it. I am playing a navy officer."
The makers are yet to announce the two leading ladies of the film which will be helmed by debutant Tinu Suresh Desai.
'Rustom' is slated to release on 12th August 2016.
