Starring Akshay Kumar in lead role of Ranjit Katyal, a wealthy and powerful Indian businessman, who has always seen himself as a Kuwaiti, rather than an Indian, realizes that he no longer wields any influence on the Iraqis, and that he and his family are in as much danger as anyone else. Ranjit unknowingly becomes the man who all 1,70,000 Indians look up to for getting them out safely from Kuwait. AIRLIFT is the story of Indians stranded in Kuwait during this traumatic time. A story of how they, with the help of Ranjit Katyal, managed to survive the Iraqi invasion, and against all odds travelled a thousand kilometres across the border into Amman, Jordan. From Amman, 1,70,000 Indians were brought home by the largest and the most successful evacuation ever attempted by any country, in the history of the world.
 
Over 59 days, the Indian government systematically flew over 488 commercial flights into a war zone to evacuate all 1,70,000 Indians and safely bring them back home.

Bhushan Kumar of T-Series speaking on producing a film on such genre, ''It's my conviction that the story will be equally appreciated once on celluloid as much as I loved it during narration. The character that Akshay plays is filled with heroism and I am sure he will add to the perfection with this central character role that he essays.''

AIRLIFT is an uplifting and entertaining edge-of-the-seat thriller and is the story of the biggest ever human evacuation in the history of mankind. AIRLIFT is produced by T-Series, Cape of Good Films with Crouching Tiger and Emmay Entertainment will go on floors in April 2015.
