External Affairs Ministry Points Out Glitches In Akshay Kumar’s Airlift

Akshay-Kumar-Nimrat-Kaur-Airlift[tps_footer]Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur starrer ‘Airlift’ has impressed masses all over. The patriotic film which deals with the largest evacuation by India has been appreciated for its plot and concept too. Not only has the film received thumbs up from the critics, the box office collections of the movie are also commendable. Moreover, Akshay Kumar‘s performance is also applauded.


Nevertheless, when a film is based on a true event there are bound to be critical glitches in terms of depiction. According to reports, External Affairs Ministry has now pointed out some crucial glitches in the film ‘Airlift’. The ministry has opined that the film has taken some artistic liberties.

The spokesman of ministry Vikas Swarup was heard saying the fact that such a theme has been selected for a film shows how important it is and they at the ministry of external affairs consider the protection of Indian citizens abroad as among foremost responsibilities.

He further added saying that this is a film, and  films often take liberties with actual events, with facts and this particular film has also taken a lot of artistic liberties in the depictions of the events that actually happened in Kuwait in 1990. He asserted that he can vouch for this as he himself was on the frontline of evacuating Indians from Kuwait who were coming to Turkey via Syria.

Vikas Swarup further stated saying that those who may not remember the 1990 evacuation will certainly remember the more recent evacuations that the ministry of external affairs had coordinated from Iraq, from Libya, from Yemen and from Ukraine.


Nevertheless, Vikas Swarup further concluded by saying that films like ‘Airlift’ would also help in inspiring people to read more about such events. He opined that ‘Airlift’ was an entertainer but fell short of facts.
