When Akshay was asked about his role in the movie, he said, “My role in Airlift hasn’t been modified. My character, his wife and children basically had the chance to escape, but he had numerous workers under him. He decided that first he’ll relocate them to a safer place since they had come to work under his responsibility. It is about the greatness of this character.”
Akshay further added, “Airlift is not commercial cinema. All the characters that you see in the film have not been portrayed as colourful. They have not been given a commercial angle. It has been portrayed as it was. It’s not a war film. Basically, it’s about how smartly he managed everything and how he took everybody out.”
When the actor was asked if he deserves a National award for Airlift, he said, “Perhaps after watching the film, it will happen.” (Read: Airlift Music Review)
