The trailer of Airlift released and the trailer has received a huge round of applause. The teaser which was released a couple of weeks ago the market study shows that Airlift’s first day collection will be higher then Akshay’s last few releases.
The trailer has the right doses of Heroism and Patriotism. The film is directed by Raja Menon and also stars Nimrat Kaur.
Airlift is based on a true story of the biggest ever human evacuation in the world that holds a Guinness World Record. On August 2, 1990 when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, 1,70,000 Indians were rendered homeless and bankrupt. There was however, one hero, Ranjit Katyal (Akshay), who risked his own life and that of his family to help evacuate his fellow Indians.
When asked Akshay what does he feel with the response of the trailer he says, “It’s great to see Indians loving films like Baby and Gabbar Is Back, which make us proud of ourselves. In the trailer, when the Indian tricolour goes up, it’s not just the audience who gets goose bumps. Even I had the same reaction when I heard the script. It’s a heroic and patriotic story, based on true events, which could not have come at a better time than this Republic Day weekend.“
Airlift, produced by T-Series, Hari Om Productions, Emmay Entertainment and Abundantia Entertainment, releases on January 22.
