We are coming up to 25 years since the first Gulf War was declared. A film based on a remarkable true story, Airlift stars Indian superstar Akshay Kumar (who also acts as producer) along with Nimrat Kaur (The Lunchbox and Homeland). The film is released worldwide on 22nd January.

Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Airlift is based on the true-life story of Kuwaiti-Indian businessman Ranjit Katyal (played by Akshay Kumar), who orchestrated the largest human evacuation in history. He safely evacuated over 170,000 Indians who were airlifted using 488 Air India flights in just 59 days from Kuwait through to India via Iraq and Jordan during the Gulf War.

Due to India’s political alliance with Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War, the incident was muzzeld by the media and there are no mentions in text books.

Check out the trailer for the movie below.
