Did you know Irrfan Khan was the first choice for THIS Akshay Kumar film?
Nikkhil Advani in a recent chat with Film Companion spoke about the time when Akshay Kumar asked him to be a part of ‘Airlift’. Speaking about it Nikkhil said, “I once went to narrate a film to Akshay and he immediately said, ‘No this is not for me’. He asked what else I was working on. I said there is this other film that I’m not directing. A director called Raja Menon will make it, it’s based on a real story. It was Airlift. Next morning he said, why won’t you offer this to me.”
