Akshay Kumar had given a treat to his fans a few minutes before his 48th birthday when he took to his Twitter handle and announced that he would be collaborating yet again with Neeraj Pandey for a romantic thriller titled 'Rustom'.
However now there are rumours 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. One even hears that Akshay plays the role of Rustom, the man who is tried for the murder of his wife's lover.
A 9XE report quoted a source as saying, "The movie draws from the Nanavati case but it will be dramatised to a considerable extent."
Currently Akshay is busy with 'Airlift' post which he will start shooting for this film. 'Rustom' is slated to hit the big screens on 12th August 2016.
