Akshay Kumar is famous for carrying out his own stunts in his movies. He is also known for his discipline and the rigorous hard work that is put into every shot. His next film 'Airlift' required him to speak in Arabic and has been learning the language for the past three weeks in order to get the correct diction for his lines.
Raja Menon, the director of ‘Airlift’, said, “Akshay always works very hard to get his roles perfect. His dedication is commendable and I know he will give the film his best.”
Airlift is being projected as an edge-of-the-seat entertainer with enough adrenalin-packed moments. It revolves around the biggest human evacuation in modern history.
Akshay Kumar plays the role of a businessman in Kuwait, Ranjit Katyal, who ends up being the saviour for 1,70,000 Indians starnded in Kuwait when Iraq invaded them. In the film, Ranjit never considers himself to be much of an Indian and has to speak in Arabic in certain scenes.
Nikhil Advani, who is the producer of the film, said, “Akshay is a perfectionist. The minute he found out he had a few dialogues in Arabic, he immediately started learning the language, so he could perfect the tonality and pronunciations of each word.”
Here's wishing Khiladi Kumar bit-tawfiq (good luck) with the new language and also for the film
‘Airlift’ is produced under the Emmay Entertainment & Motion Pictures LLP along with T-Series and Cape of Good, in strategic partnership with Abundantia Entertainment.
