After Akshay unveiled the first teaser of the film on Wednesday morning, Twinkle took to Twitter to appreciate it. "What an amazing teaser! I had goosebumps and all #Airlift," she posted.

In the over two-minute long teaser, the 48-year-old is seen as an influential businessman who has made many enemies owing to his power.

It gives a sneak peek of the time when Iraq invaded Kuwait and Indians had to be evacuated in 1990.

Akshay had earlier mentioned that he is proud to be a part of the film.

"How many people know about the Kuwait evacuation? I'm proud to be part of a film that brings this true story alive," he tweeted.

Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, the film also stars Nimrat Kaur. It is slated to release on January 22 next year.
