Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, will be seen in “Airlift”, inspired by the evacuation of Indians who were based in Kuwait during the Iraq-Kuwait war.

Talking about his film, Akshay said that he portrays a multi-millionaire businessman who loses everything in the war. “I have seen a film like this… Balraj Sahni’s ‘Waqt’ where a person goes through the same experience. That film got stuck on my mind.”

He also says it can’t be compared to Hollywood star Ben Affleck’s Oscar-winning film “Argo”.

“This is a complete original story and non-fictional. ‘Airlift’ is about a Kuwait-based businessman who was stuck along with more than a lakh people who were staying in Kuwait at that time (1990).

“‘Airlift’ and ‘Argo’ are different and can’t be compared,” said Akshay. “Argo” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis — the truth of which was not known by the public for decades.
