MEA Questions Akshay Kumar’s Movie AIRLIFT

Akshay Kumar’s film “Airlift” based on the evacuation of Indians stranded in Kuwait after the 1990 invasion by Iraq has triggered a row with diplomats questioning the sequence of events as depicted in the film. The MEA came out strongly saying that the filmmaker has taken artistic liberties. Airlift director, Raja Krishna Menon today said, I made an honest film, there’s nothing to hide and there’s no reason to hide. Its an undocumented event. If someone has more truth to it, please bring it to me. “I created a story based on the account of 100 people, of what they saw, what was going on in their mind, they were a part of something and this is what happened here. I knew the events happened, now above that – aisa nahi hua tha, aisa hua tha – I don’t know that.” Earlier the Ministry of External Affairs today termed Bollywood film “Airlift”, which portrays the Kuwait evacuation of 1990 and its role, as “great entertainment but rather short on facts”.
