Airlift is the story of Indians stranded in Kuwait during this traumatic time. A story of how they, with the help of Akshay Kumar as Ranjit Katyal, managed to survive the Iraqi invasion, and against all odds travelled a thousand kilometers across the border into Amman, Jordan. From Amman, 1,70,000 Indians were brought home by the largest and the most successful evacuation ever attempted by any country, in the history of the world. Over 59 days, the Indian government systematically flew over 488 Air India commercial flights into a war zone to evacuate all 1,70,000 Indians and safely bring them back home.
Airlift is directed by Nikhil Advani and Raja Krishna Menon, and is a co-production between T-series, Cape of Good Films, Crouching Tiger and Emmay Entertainment.
