Akshay Kumar’s Airlift is slated for theatrical release on January 22 and the buzz around the film is already strong, thanks to the powerful trailer. Akshay essays the role of Ranjit Katyal, an Indian businessman who controls a large conglomerate in Kuwait, while Nimrat Kaur plays his wife. Set in the backdrop of the Gulf war of 1990, it shows how Akshay’s Ranjit suddenly loses everything and has to depend on the country he left behind, India, for his very survival. Akshay, who has recently worked in the successful thriller Baby, looks every bit the rich businessman determined to fight all odds and emerge a winner even in the scary scenario of Saddam’s attack on Kuwait. Directed by Raja Menon and produced by Nikhil Advani, the film also stars Purab Kohli and Prakash Belawadi in pivotal roles.
Gearing up for the release, the makers have shared songs from the film and we are not too impressed. Take a look at the songs we have watched so far:
Soch Na Sake
The soulful number where Nimrat Kaur and Akshay Kumar are seen romancing in the rain, was the first song to be released on December 17. Arijit Singh and Tulsi Kumar have lent their voices and Kumar has penned down the song.
