Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has said that ‘USP’ of Rustom is the lead woman having an extra martial affair. “Usually in a Hindi film a man gets into extra martial affair and his wife forgives and accepts him and then they live happily. But there was no film where a woman has an extra martial affair and asks for forgiveness and the husband decides whether to forgive or not. I think this is the USP of the film. Nobody can deny that this doesn’t happen in real life,” Akshay said.

“I did not take to books or started lessons and learning about the rules and regulations of Indian Navy. I did not meet anyone from the Navy. There was a naval officer who was guiding us on how to salute and wear badges, how the walk should be, how the uniform should be worn,” he added.

The Airlift star further said, “There is something when you put the uniform you feel responsibility. It makes you feel you are the man and take charge. I envy people who wear uniform,” he added.

Rustom is produced by Neeraj Pandey and this will be Akshay’s third collaboration with him post Special 26 and Baby. “The screenplay is really good. He wouldn’t even come to me without a good story. We are making another couple of films,” he said.
