Akshay captioned the photo, "Decorated officer.Devoted family man. Defending his honour. His name? RUSTOM. Know his story on 12 Aug #RustomFirstLook."



'Rustom' is touted to be a romantic-thriller set in the late 1950s.

The film marks Akshay's third collaboration with Neeraj Pandey. Akshay and Neeraj have earlier worked as actor-director in 'Baby' and 'Special 26', both of which found appreciation. 'Rustom', however, is not being directed by Pandey, and instead marks the directorial debut of Tinu Suresh Desai.

Inspired by real life incidents, the project is co-produced by Zee Studios, KriArj Entertainment and Friday Filmworks.

Apart from the actor, the movie will feature two young actresses.

Pandey will pen the dialogues of the film himself; will co-write the screenplay along with Vipul Rawal; and also contribute towards the film's edit.

'Rustom' is slated to release on August 12.
