Film, which is based on real life events in the 1950s, reveals first look

The first poster of RUSTOM was released by megastar AKSHAY KUMAR, who portrays the role of Rustom Pavri.

Akshay Kumar tweeted: ‘3 shots that shocked the nation and changed his life! Find out what happened with #Rustom this August 12, 2016.’

He is pictured in his Naval Officer attire, sporting a distinguished moustache with Ileana D’Cruz in the background. It is reported that to ensure Akshay Kumar shines in his new role, costume designer Ameira Punvani spent three months working on his distinct look.

Inspired by real-life incidents set in the late ’50s, Rustom is a romantic-thriller written by Neeraj Pandey and Vipul Rawal, and directed by Tinu Suresh Desai.

Rustom will mark a hat trick for Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar after delivering two blockbuster hits – Special 26 and Baby. The film also stars Esha Gupta and will be shot in Europe.
