The film will reportedly show pictures of real life evacuation

Debutant director Raja Krishna Menon's Airlift, based on the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussain in 1990 and the rescue of stranded Indians by businessman Ranjit Katyal, will have some surprisingly real footage.

Apparently, Menon has chanced upon real-life images of the evacuation that have been incorporated at the end of the feature film. 

Speaking to the press, Menon said, "We found two rolls of undeveloped film in the Air India office. It was very hard to develop them, but we managed and found to our amazement that they were pictures of the actual evacuation. We have used these images to wrap up the film."
