“What an amazing teaser! I had goosebumps and all #Airlift,” she posted.
In the over two-minute long teaser, the 48-year-old is seen as an influential businessman who has made many enemies owing to his power.
It gives a sneak peek of the time when Iraq invaded Kuwait and Indians had to be evacuated in 1990.
Akshay had earlier mentioned that he is proud to be a part of the film.
