“Airlift” Movie Story Line:
The film tells the story of Ranjit Katiyal (played by Akshay Kumar), who helps more than 170,000 Indians to be airlifted during the war.
Here is the story of “Airlift” Iraq wanted Kuwait to reduce oil production, to create a scarcity of oil leading to increasing oil prices, thereby helping Iraq raise more money. But Kuwait refused, leaving Iraq furious. On August 2nd, 1990 Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait (part of the first Gulf War).
The Iraqi army took over the city within a few hours. The Kuwaiti royal family managed to escape to Saudi Arabia, leaving the state rudderless. The city was looted and the general population subjugated and made to suffer great tragedies in the hands of the Iraqi army. Kuwait was home to almost 170,000 Indians, all of who had suddenly become moneyless and homeless including Ranjit Katyal. The Government of India, with the help of the Indian Army and Air India, initiated the heroic operation which would go down in history. How the Indian government with the help of Akshay Kumar, managed to survive the Iraqi invasion & airlifted over 1,70,000 Indians from Kuwait forms the remaining story.
