So, here is presenting the first look of Sonam Kapoor in and as Neerja Bhanot in the Biopic by the title name. This might be the career defining moment of Sonam as she has got most probably the biggest film of her life.
Neerja Bhanot was a flight attendant for Pan Am, based in Mumbai, India, who was murdered while saving passengers from terrorists on board the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 on 5 September 1986. Posthumously, she became the youngest recipient of India's highest civilian award for bravery, the Ashok Chakra.
Sonam Kapoor says, "There are times in an actor's career when a very special role in a special motion picture comes your way. The biopic of Neerja Bhanot is one such. I feel honoured and humbled to have the opportunity to essay the role of India's youngest Ashoka Chakra awardee."
