While sharing the poster of the film, Akshay Kumar wrote, "3 shots that shocked the nation and changed his life! Find out what happened with #Rustom this August 12, 2016."

Inspired by real life incidents, 'Rustom' is touted to be a romantic-thriller set in the late 1950s. Buzz is that the film is based on the 1959 Nanavati case where naval officer Kavas Maneckshaw Nanavati was tried for the murder of his wife’s lover.

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.

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.

Apart from Akshay Kumar, 'Rustom' also stars Ileana D'Cruz.

'Rustom' is slated to release on August 12.
