Max to air Yash Raj Films’ Kabul Express

MUMBAI: Max will be airing the John Abraham starrer Kabul Express on 11 August at 8 pm. The film is directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Yash Raj Films.

Suhail (John Abraham) and Jai (Arshad Warsi) are journalists in search of the ultimate news scoop: meeting the Taliban.

Imran Khan Afridi is a soldier of the hated Taliban who needs to escape the wrath of the Afghans and run to his country, Pakistan. Khyber is an Afghan who is as old as the war in his country. Jessica Beckham is an American photojournalist ready to risk her life to photograph the Taliban.

Five people from different worlds, their paths are destined to cross in a ruthless country devastated by war – Afghanistan. This is a thrilling story, spanning 48 hours, of five individuals linked by hate and fear, but brought together by fate to finally recognize each other. Set in post 9/11 war-torn Afghanistan, Kabul Express is a kidnap drama that is alternatively funny and horrifying.

Narrated in a light-hearted manner, this is the story of a unique reluctant bond that develops between people who are otherwise hostile towards each other but are compelled to understand one another in the time that they are forced to share together.
