With a huge lineup of successful patriotic films like Holiday, Baby, Gabbar Is Back, and Airlift, this time Akshay Kumar is back as Commander Rustom Pavri. Rustom is based on the famous Nanavati case of 1959 that led to the scrapping of the jury system in India. Akshay’s Rustom Pavri is presumably a fictionalized version of Commander Kawas Manekshaw Nanavati, a naval officer who was tried for murdering his wife’s lover.
The film also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Arjan Bajwa and Esha Gupta.
