Well about time someone made a movie about Gulf War time. Finally Bollywood is making a movie “AirLift” which is based around a fictional story of an Indian businessman who helps airlift nearly 170,000 Indians during the Gulf War. The movie stars Indian superstar Akshay Kumar as the businessman.

Now couple of things here..the movie is for some reason being shot in Ras Al-Khaima. I wonder why they didnt turn up in Kuwait to shoot authentic locations. And given the large Indian community here they would have had a better input into how things were then during 1990. And as always in Bollywood movies, I hope they maintain some accuracy about the events during the exodus. Well I will keep an eye on this one, as I was with my family who had to leave Kuwait via Iraq/Jordan living in camps, driving through military checkpoints, queuing up at the Amman airport for days..So Mr Director, if you need pointers get in touch.
