Cinekorn Entertainment’s Kalapi Nagada said, “Asia has always been a splurging market for Hindi Films and the numbers are increasing day by day as more of non ethnic audiences have been getting glued to Hindi films. We have acquired the film from B4U Television, who is the official international distributor of the film Airlift. We are very positive and confident on the film since in the past Akshay Kumar with Singh is Bliing and Baby has become very popular among local audiences. In fact, we plan to go all out in terms of release spread for Airlift from the growing popularity of the past Akshay Kumar films.”
