When Iraq invades Kuwait in August, 1990, a callous Indian businessman becomes the spokesperson for more than 170,000 stranded countrymen.
Kumar felt that the film possessed significant offbeat potential, with a good amount of "patriotism" and a reason to be a proud Indian.
The only thing that sets us apart is that we are Indians and not Kuwaitis. If we are together, we matter. Otherwise, we mean nothing.
The school buses that were used to transport stranded Indians within Kuwait and from there to Jordan was in yellow color. In those days, the school buses were not required to be in yellow color and it became mandatory only after 2010.
