Nikhil Advani: AIRLIFT is an extremely patriotic film
|NIKHIL ADVANI AND AKSHAY KUMAR|
Ask producer Nikhil Advani about his upcoming film AIRLIFT and he says, “I have seen about 82 minutes of the film. I think there is one last schedule that is going to happen from 20th of October onwards and then they’ll release on 22nd of January.”
We had seen a photo of Akshay Kumar from AIRLIFT and after seeing it we thought Akshay was portraying an older character in the film. When we asked Nikhil about the same, he said, “There is no first look as yet. He isn’t playing an older guy, he is playing his age, he’s playing a man who is 45. It’s a very different role for him, it’s a very different space.”Also Read - Akshay Kumar's AIRLIFT lands at Ras Al Khaimah
Further ask him if this is going to be on the similar lines as BABY or GABBAR IS BACK and he says, “This is going to be very different from his other films primarily because BABY & GABBAR IS BACK were extremely physical and AIRLIFT is not. AIRLIFT is more about great performance and outstanding story. It is a true story of how 170 thousand people were evacuated from KUWAIT.”
Talking about the patriotic angle, he further said, “This is an extremely patriotic film. It creates a very patriotic emotion so it’s different.”
Whenever Akshay has done patriotic films, he has been really loved by the masses. So let’s hope this works for Akshay Kumar this time as well. But we will have to wait a little longer as the film releases on 22nd January, 2016.
