The 33-year-old actress said the "Brothers" star, 47, has made shooting for the film enjoyable and fun.

"Working with Akshay is fantastic. It is a pleasure to work with him. He is such a great guy. It is too much fun when he is around on sets," Nimrat told PTI.

"Airlift" is a Indian human drama on the backdrop of the Gulf War in 1990 which happened in Kuwait (biggest human evacuation in the history), directed by Raja Krishna Menon.

Having starred in internationally acclaimed "The Lunchbox" and completing a successful tryst in American TV scene with "Homeland", Nimrat is happy to be a part of "Airlift", which will release next year.

"We have three weeks of shoot left for November... We have a good 30 per cent of the film left. We are all very excited for it. It is coming out really well," she said on the sidelines of the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week here.

Though it is an action film, the actress said she does not have very difficult stunts to perform. "There aren't any elaborate action sequence. It is all normal.
