Akshay plays the character, Ranjit Katyal, who is a rich and powerful businessman. He ends up becoming the savior of 1,70,000 Indians stranded in Kuwait for the Iraqi invasion. Ranjit didn’t consider himself much of an Indian. He speaks Arabic at certain points throughout the film.

The producer of the film, Nikhil Advani said, “Akshay is a perfectionist. The minute he found out he had a few dialogues in Arabic, he immediately started learning the language, so he could perfect the tonality and pronunciations of each word.”
