Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar team up once again for the cinematic retelling of another real life incident after Special 26– a Nanavati murder case in 1959 where a Naval officer Rustom Pavri discovers that his wife has been cheating on him, and later goes on to kill her lover.

The infamous K M Nanavati vs State of Maharashtra was a sensational case back then and led to the abolishment of several jury trials. Previously declared ‘not guilty’, the verdict was later repudiated by the Bombay High Court.
