The first poster of Akshay Kumar-Nimrat Kaur starrer Airlift is now officially out and the teaser will be unveiled on Wednesday.
Superstar Akshay Kumar has shared the first poster of his upcoming film “Airlift”, based on the biggest evacuation of Indians based in Kuwait during the Iraq-Kuwait war (1990-91). The movie, directed by Raja Krishna Menon, also stars “The Lunchbox” actress Nimrat Kaur.
The black-and-white poster shows an aircraft flying above a runway, laden with smoke and fume. Written on the poster is, “1,70,000 Refugees, 488 Flights, 59 days, 1 man.”
“Mark the date guys… @AirliftFilm releases on January 22, 2016. #AirliftTeaserOnWednesday,” Akshay captioned the poster. The 48-year-old actor further tweeted, “How many people know about the Kuwait evacuation? I’m proud to be part of a film that brings this true story alive.”
He also shared another black-and-white image, showing him sporting a serious look. “India airlifted over 1,70,000 people from Kuwait in the largest human evacuation in history,” he captioned the look. Co-producer Nikkhil Advani shared the poster on Twitter and captioned it, “The sad thing is we really don’t need to #RewindTo1990. The innocent are still the collateral damage in any war.”
While the first look poster has set the right mood for the film, the action packed teaser will be unveiled on Wednesday. The film releases on January 22, 2016.
