AIRLIFT POSTERMUMBAI–Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the teaser trailer for the Akshay Kumar-Nimrat Kaur starrer Airlift. The action-packed, gritty trailer doesn’t disappoint, as it released internationally this week.

Airlift is based on true life events during the tumultuous Gulf War, and is an edge-of-the-seat thriller based on one of the biggest human evacuations in history. An Indian businessman, Ranjit Katyal (Akshay Kumar) played a pivotal role in helping to evacuate 1,70,000 Indians back to their home country at the time of the crisis.

To mark the film’s trailer release, for the past 10 days, Akshay has been using the hashtag #‎RewindTo1990 to share with fans milestone moments from the 1990s — the time period during which the film is set.
