A quarter century ago, after #SaddamHussein's #Iraqi #army successfully invaded and took over the tiny #PersianGulf nation of #Kuwait, President George H.W.

The taut thriller Airlift about the evacuation of Indians from Kuwait after Saddam Hussain’s invasion in 1990 and one man’s heroism is not the kind of film where songs fit in. And yet, director Raja Krishna Menon conceived a prelude where Akshay sings a song during a get-together.
