MUMBAI: Hindi movie channel &pictures will air courtroom saga ‘Rustom’ on 26 January at 8 pm. The movie was premiered on Zee Cinema in October last year.

His next step creates a stir in everyone’s life, when he rushes to Vikram’s bedroom and the servants hear three gun shots. They find Vikram’s body in a pool of blood and Rustom walks away without saying a word. What follows is a legal battle in which Rustom surrenders himself but halfway through the hearing, he decides to fight back. Vikram’s sister Priti (Esha Gupta) hires the best lawyers to ensure Rustom is charged for the murder.
