Sonam Kapoor is playing the title role in 'Neerja'- a film which is based on the life of Pan Am airhostess Neerja Bhanot who lost her life while saving passengers from terrorists in 1986.
And now it has been revealed that singer-musician Shekhar Ravjiani will be making his acting debut with this film. He will be seen romancing Sonam Kapoor.
Neerja started off her career as a model, post which she went on to having an arranged marriage that went sour. She then returned to live with her parents in Mumbai,when she got trained to be an airhostess. At the same time she fell for a man in his late twenties, while she was just 23 when she died. Shekhar plays this man.
We must say this casting looks quite fresh and unconventional!
'Neerja' 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.
