Akshay plays naval officer Rustom Pavri in the film, which is inspired from the real life Nanavati case. Rustom also stars Ileana D'Cruz, Arjan Bajwa and Esha Gupta.

In Jolly LLB 2, Akshay plays a lawyer. He looks really bechara in the first glimpse:

Dressed in a lawyer's black-and-white clothes and a tika on his forehead, Akshay looks comical. The film is a sequel to Subhash Kapoor's 2013 sleeper hit, Jolly LLB.
