Akshay Kumar’s Airlift goes on floors

The first shooting schedule of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Airlift began at Bhuj, Gujarat on Saturday. The cast and crew of the film will be shooting through the month, to complete the film in time for a Republic Day release next year.

Coincidentally, Ashutosh Gowariker and Hrithik Roshan are also shooting for ‘Mohenjo Daro’ which was earlier scheduled to release during the ‘Republic Day’ weekend next year.

The producer of the film, Nikhil Advani tweeted “Weird being on a set and not directing. #AirliftTheMovie takes off.”

Akshay decided to go ahead with the shoot of ‘Airlift’ first. The film was initially scheduled to go on floors in April 2015.

Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Airlift is a concept inspired by real life incidents of human evacuation especially in war zone areas.

  • @Ranbir rox ……

    Read this Just 4 u …

    Roy had another huge crash on its second Friday as it grossed around 50-55 lakhs nett. The film has dropped close to 95% from day one.There will be growth on Saturday but not the sort that there is normally on a second Saturday as the film has been rejected totally.
    There is the cricket match on Sunday so the weekend business may go to around 1.75 crore nett. The first week was around 33 crore nett so the lifetime business of the film is looking to finish at 36 crore nett.
    The film is a huge flop and will finish at 36 crore nett lifetime business but is still second highest grosser of the year showing how bad the year has been till date.

    Roy lifetime – 36 cr..
    Besharm – 52 cr…
    Total – 88cr..
    Baby – 96cr …

  • Ranbir rocks.. .Girlish actor… Plz start affair wid anushka….

    Ranbir cannot do intense roles…only to rom-com n affair rumour… Faltu flop actor ranbir..

  • @Ranbir rocks
    Besharam opening day= 19 cr
    Baby opening day= 9 cr

    Baby + Entertainment + Joker =176 cr
    YJHD= 179 cr

  • Airlift get solo release, beside shivay not clash. Because ajay starar “badshao” release in 22march(holi weekend) and we all knew that all star bringing gap of 4-5 month own project :;, oh! except “akshay”

  • When this 60cr club king will retire.someone can give message to this today’s garbage actor that how he become a threat to the industry by giving 90% craps to Bollywood considering his entire career. that’s why audience skipped his good movie like baby ,it’s that directors’s fault to take this garbage actor in the film.actually how can be a person can run so blindly after money by delivering bunch if garbage movies in a year?KJO sir did a serious mistake by taking this stardomless actor in his Brothers. In today actors like akshay,salman are curse to Bollywood by competing with each other by delivering useless 3rd class maindless garbage.and I listened again a south remakes will deliver by akki,oh my….?I don’t have any words ti scold.

  • Waiting for Airlift..but it has no Neeraj Pandey at the helm but anyways it’s an interesting project…Akki has cut down his fees by 35% to get the economics right..
    Hope it becomes a success.

  • akshay should do two films every year not four films the gap will affect his most movies.
    all his movies should be original scripts
    not all his movies remake really not good.
    all the best akshay!

  • 2011: Patiala House
    2012: OMG-Oh My God!
    2013: Special 26
    2014: Holiday-A Soldier Is Never Off Duty
    2015: Baby
    2016: Airlift!
    You can always expect Akshay Kumar to give a good movie each year when other actors giving Dhoom 3 or Chennai Express(It was funny but brain dead) or Dabangg 2 or Besharam or Kil Dil or Tevar!!!
    Not insulting other stars but they were just examples

  • @somebuddha mukherjee

    I cant believe your troll IDs are being trolled n then you troll those very same troll IDs etc etc etc

    What a joke…

    This vicious cycle of chameleonism has never been so annoying as it is today n sole reason for its contempt by everyone is YOU….

  • i feel very sad when i read some comments saying this will be another 70cr. we want to see good movie with sensible content. not fake action with few fake item songs.

  • excellent countee reply my friend @ranbir rox to the moronic comments of rk haters.superb bro.I hv fallen in luv with ur personality.r u on fb?I want to personally thank u for doing wat I could nvr do in my indicine life,that is to aggressively take on the rk haters without caring about their personal attacks on u.

  • another 70 cr is definitely on cards.
    if you read careful the tweet from Advani, you can feel how insecure he is about Akki, he sounds nervous. but Why Nikhil Advani is wasting his money on Akki?
