T-Series Super Cassettes Industries Ltd. Cape of Good Films, Crouching Tiger Motion Pictures and Emmay Entertainment Pvt. Ltd presents AIRLIFT, an upcoming Bollywood film is set to release on January 22, 2016.


Jointly Produced by Aruna Bhatia, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Vikram Malhotra, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Nikhil Advani and directed by Raja Krishna Menon, AIRLIFT stars Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur in the lead roles.

The music of the movie is given by Amaal Malik and Ankit Tiwari while the lyrics are penned by Kumaar.


AIRLIFT is an edge-of-the-seat entertaining thriller. The story, based on a true event, is set in 1990 in Kuwait, the time of the Gulf War when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. The film has Akshay Kumar, playing Ranjit Katyal, a wealthy and powerful Indian businessman, who initially considers himself a Kuwaiti rather than an Indian. But after finding himself and the lives of his family in danger, eventually becomes the man who helps evacuate 170,000 Indians from Kuwait and brings them back safely to India. Over 59 days, 488 Air India commercial airliners were flown into a war zone to evacuate 170,000 Indians and bring them back home safely. 

AIRLIFT is the story of the largest human evacuation in history, which has also found its way to the Guinness Book Of World Records. In a cynical world, where one often wonders what the country has done for them, this is a stark reminder of what the country did, not for one or ten, but for 170,000 of its own. An event which has almost been lost in the sands of history, but an event we all need to remember.
