Would love to be Incredible India ambassador: Akshay Kumar

New Delhi, Jan 18 (IANS) Actor Akshay Kumar, who has been a part of the entertainment industry for almost three decades, says he would love to be the brand ambassador of the tourism ministry’s Incredible India campaign.

Since Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is no longer fronting the ads of the government campaign, there has been a lot of speculation as to who would replace him.

Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Akshay are among the names floating around to be the face of the campaign.

Asked if he would like to be the new Incredible India ambassador, Akshay said: “It’s a big thing. Why not? I would love to be there. It’s a good thing”.

The “Khiladi” star was here on Monday to promote his forthcoming film “Airlift”, which has patriotism at its core. Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, “Airlift” is based on the evacuation of Kuwait-based Indians during the Iraqi occupation in 1990.

Akshay plays the crucial character of Ranjit Katyal who was an unsung hero in aiding the evacuation process.

“India is the greatest country – that is what we want to show in this film. ‘Airlift’ means air evacuation. The film shows how 1,70,000 people were evacuated from one place to other,” the actor said.

Apart from him, the film also stars “The Lunchbox” star Nimrat Kaur.
