The poster shows Akshay Kumar donned in a white suit sporting grey beards, while Nimrat is clad in a silk robe. The background of the poster hints speaks of the gaudy Arabic interiors.

As the shooting of 'Airlift' takes off, Nimrat actress took to Twitter to post a photo of her along with co-star Akshay. The picture showed both the stars giving the Muhrat clap.

"Seated and buckled up! #AirliftTheMovie," Nimrat captioned the picture.

The film will have Akshay playing Ranjit Katyal, a billionaire businessman who aids the high-profile rescue operation.

Bhushan Kumar, producer T-Series, says, “The story is about Ranjit played by Akshay Kumar who helps in the world’s biggest human evacuation. We were looking for an actress with a strong persona to play his wife which will do justice to the strong emotional support the lead character needs. Nimrat has done a really good job in her previous films and made a mark in the industry. I am happy she is on board for the role.”

The film which deals with the real life incident of the biggest human evacuation process in Kuwait is scheduled to release in May 2015.
