Superstar Akshay Kumar says his upcoming film Airlift, based on the biggest evacuation of Indians based in Kuwait during the Iraq-Kuwait war, will make everyone proud.
“@AirliftFilm, a true story that will make you #ProudToBeIndian! #Jan22,” he posted on Twitter.
Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Airlift also stars actors Nimrat Kaur and Purab Kohli. The film is slated to hit the screens on January 22, 2016.
Bhushan Kumar’s Airlift directed by Raja Menon, based on true events, is a heroic story of a man Ranjit Katyal (played by Akshay Kumar), a wealthy and powerful Indian businessman who had always seen himself as a Kuwaiti and not Indian, but who with the help of the Indian government, safely evacuated these 170,000 Indians back to their country.
