The landmark case had created differences between many communities in India. In 2016, the Bollywood film Rustom also portrayed the same murder trial with Akshay Kumar and Ileana D’Cruz in the lead.

While the role of Commander Nanavati is played by Kaul, AvrRam plays his wife and Patel plays Prem Ahuja, her lover who subsequently turns into the murder victim.
