Talking about the Raja Krishna Menon directorial, Nimrat said: “I really consider myself very fortunate to be a part of this story. It's a story that I didn't know about. When I read the script, I didn't know that this has happened and I was shocked about that." In the movie, which is about the evacuation of Kuwait-based Indians in 1990, Nimrat plays the wife to actor Akshay Kumar's character.
“I play the role of Ranjit Katyal's wife Amrita Katyal. She is a very outspoken person, and not fearful of speaking her mind.” Asked about her experience working with Akshay, Nimrat said: “I was extremely excited to work with Akshay. He is someone whose work and choices I have admired completely." “Airlift” will release on January 22.
