Akshay Kumar recent release of 2015 'Baby' received good reviews from all corners and also from audiences. Film also did decent to good business at box office by collecting over 95 crore nett in India alone. But still film is touted in trade a semi Hit project. Main reason for that is film high budget. Nowadays because of crash of Satellite Rights prices, film major business is done from India theatricals. Although Baby recovered good amount of distributor share from India, but its other revenues are poor.
Hence, looking into all the fact, makers of Airlift have decided to control the budget of Airlift. Airlift is upcoming film of Akshay Kumar which will be released in Republic Day Weekend of 2016. Airlift movie is based on true story and is about largest human evacuation. Film shooting is just started few days back. News is that there will be no compromise on quality of the product. Film will be shot on grand scale. However, makers will look to control the publicity and advertising part of the film.
Also, there is news that Akshay Kumar is quite confident on the latest product and he has struck a profit sharing deal with 'Airlift.' Which in a way reduces the budget of the film significantly.
