Sonam Kapoor's first look from 'Neerja Bhanot' biopic has garnered appreciation from all quarters. The actress plays the title role in the film.
Neerja Bhanot was a flight attendant of Pan Am who lost her life while trying to save the lives of passengers from terrorists on board, who had hijacked the flight on 5th September, 1986. Later, posthumously, she was conferred with the prestigious Ashok Chakra Award.
Recently, 'papa' Anil Kapoor visited the sets of 'Neerja Bhanot' and was quite proud to see his doting daughter's new avatar. He even took to the microblogging site, Twitter and posted, "Travelling by Pan Am airlines with @BlingLive makes me think of #Neerja Proud @sonamakapoor is helping tell her story."
The film will be directed by Ram Madhvani and produced by Fox Star Studios and Bling Unplugged. Veteran actress Shabana Azmi plays a pivotal role alongside Sonam Kapoor.
