Fashionist Sonam Kapoor is on a roll. The actress has been amazing the audiences with her films, one after one. Recently, everyone loved Sonam’s different avatars in her film Dolly Ki Dholi, and guess what? The actress is all set to mesmerize everyone yet again with her charm in Ram Madhvani’s second feature film Neerja Bhanot, as reported.
The actress has bagged the lead role in the film. Sonam will be playing the role of Neerja, who was the brave flight attendant who sacrificed her life for saving others during the 1960 plane hijack. Apparently, ad filmmaker Ram Madhvani was keen on remaking the Danish series, Pinoza with Kajol as the lead. But that project fell apart as things didn’t work out. But the director came forward to clarify few things. “Let me clarify that I haven’t shelved the other project. The logistics weren’t working out, so while that project falls into place, I decided to go ahead with this one that I have been scripting for a year-and-a-half,” Ram informed a leading daily.
The director went further on and talked about his upcoming project Neerja Bhanot and revealed that Sonam Kapoor was the first person that came to his mind as he closed his eyes and thought about Neerja Bhanot. “When I closed my eyes and thought of Neerja, Sonam Kapoor came to my mind. I’ve been Sonam’s fan since Saawariya. She is just the right fit for Neerja Bhanot’s role,” according to a leading daily.
