Bollywood can never get a uniform right. The focus this time is on Akshay Kumar starrer Rustom.
Despite the film has given a patriotic twist to Nanavati murder case, it is said that it got the uniform wrong.
Akshay had earlier said the film makers have contacted some advisers in the Navy to assure that every detail about Navy is portrayed accurately but we wonder why the mishap!
Every flaw is clearly pointed out in a picture in a tweet. Akshay is shown wearing Kargil Star 1999 and Om Parakram 2001-02. Considering the movie is based in 1959, how could Akshay have fought in 1999 Kargil war? Only the filmmaker can answer that.
This is not the first time that a movie has got something wrong about a uniform. Shah Rukh Khan’s character in Jab Tak Hain Jahan was also criticised for tampering with uniform for the sake of looking good on-screen. It’s not just about wearing uniforms in the wrong way. In past, filmmakers have also done away with not giving a proper soldier haircut to their actors. – CINEWS
