Airlift Story

Based on the events of the 1990 Invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, Airlift follows the story of the evacuation and rescue of scores of Indians based in Kuwait. Ranjit Katiyal is a successful businessman who has the ruthless attitude that will take him far in the field. Identifying more with his Kuwaiti identity than recognising his roots as Indian, he lives happily with his wife and daughter. But when he hears of the Iraqi invasion, he takes on a new leaf, and becomes the patriot that the country needed, assisting in one of the most spectacular triumphs of the Indian government.
