Video: Bollywood film Rustom promotions in Kolkata

In the august presence of Akshay Kumar, Ileana D’Cruza and Esha Gupta, the promotions of the upcoming Bollywood film Rustom took place in Kolkata.


The film is based on the real life incident of Naval Officer K. M. Nanavati. Akshay Kumar will be playing a naval officer for the first time in his life. “Director Tinu Suresh Desai and writer Vipul K Rawal have done immediate research for two long years. The person who has penned down the script was himself in the Navy. So we took every help in deciding how I look in the film to any other details” said Akshay Kumar.

The actor also added that the film is not based on the Parsi religion and hence he did not have to go through details about the religion or its rituals. “I am just playing a Parsi character. I have a lot of Parsi friends. My manager Zenobia is also a Parsi and I have been learning from them”.


Ileana D’Cruz who played the role of a Bengali girl in Barfi said “I love coming back to Kolkata. My debut film Barfi showcased me as a Bengali girl. Though I was nervous, the audience liked me. And one more thing that I will like to add is whenever I come here, I eat so much”.

Akshay when questioned about how he could do so many films in a year said “I do only four films and after that so many days remain free. I could easily do six films a year but I stick to doing four films only. The free days I spend time with my family. Moreover there is so much work that there is work for everyone in the industry”.


Esha Gupta who is playing a character with shades of grey was inspired from Priyanka Chopra’s negative act in Aitraaz and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s act in Khakee. “I play the sister of the person who gets killed. My main aim is to get Rustom punished at all costs. This is indeed a nice and negative character that I played in this film” said the actress.

The film is slated for release on the 12th of August.
