A little Highlight of the Story:
In 1990, the Arab world was shocked by Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait orchestrated by the then dictator of Iraq, Saddam Hussein. While most of the royal Kuwaiti family fled to Saudi Arabia overnight, millions of people were stranded in the war-torn country, mercilessly attacked by the Iraqi forces. Among those stranded in the gulf nation were 1,70,000 Indians pleading the Indian Embassy to take them back home.
The Indian government didn’t want to invite the wrath of the international community by directly negotiating with Iraq and thus encouraged various back-channels to figure out a strategy on how to reach the Indian community and safely evacuate them from the conflict zones. Ranjit Katyal, one of the most influential Kuwaiti businessmen who saw himself as a Kuwaiti first and then an Indian businessman, came to the rescue of the Indian government.
The Movie releases on January 22, 2016 with Akshay in his Best Shoes.
