Akshay Kumar’s AIRLIFT was loved by one and all. The film garnered not only good response at BO but it even won rave reviews. The film was inspired from a real life incident and Akshay’s character of Ranjit Katyal was inspired by the real life hero Mathunny Mathews, who was a businessman from Kerala, who helped in the evacuation of around 170,000 Indians from Kuwait during the 1990 Invasion of Kuwait.

However, Mathunny Mathews passed away last night.
