The trailer had left a strong impact amongst audiences and it also garnered tremendous response from across. Before beginning shooting for the film, the Neerja Team met Neerja Bhanot‘s Mother and brothers in Chandigarh.
During the meet, when Rama met Sonam, she almost felt that her daughter has walked in. Rama then gifted a yellow dupatta to Sonam.
Neerja‘s mother, had bought a bright yellow dupatta to gift her daughter as yellow was Neerja‘s favourite colour. She couldn’t give it to her back then, as Neerja never returned.
Rama who was very aware of Neerja‘s choice had bought a bright yellow coloured dupatta to gift it to her daughter. However as the tragedy happened, Rama never got a chance to gift her the present.
Sonam was extremely honoured and was full of mixed emotions. The actress will be wearing the dupatta at one of the screenings of the film.
Directed by Ram Madhvani and Produced by Fox Star Studio’s and Bling Unplugged.
Neerja revisits the story of courage shown by the 23-year-old Mumbai based flight attendant who was posthumously awarded the Ashok Chakra for bravery — the youngest recipient to bag the honour.
Neerja Bhanot was a flight attendant for Pan Am, based in Mumbai, India, who was murdered while saving 359 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 peacetime military award for bravery, the Ashok Chakra.
Mind blowing actress Sonam is ready to flaunt her versatility by stepping into the shoes of Neerja Bhanot. The actress in the trailer is seen as a simple and confident girl. Sonam has ditched her high fashion avatar and has donned a grounded and poised image for the character. Looking promising in the shoes of the character Sonam seems to be excellent in her Neerja Bhanot role.
The trailer is mind triggering with the snapshots of Neerja’s way of life, the trailer initiates with reports of the hijack and proceeds to Sonam’s character of Neerja. Complimenting Sonam Kapooris senior talent bundle Shabana Azmi. Veteran star Shabana Azmi will be seen playing the role of Neerja’s mother. The trailer gives us a glimpse of the simple girl Neerja who is unaware of the drastic turn her life is going to take. The hijack scene is shown partly but is gripping by all means.
