Sonam shares look from ‘most special’ film Neerja
Actress Sonam Kapoor has shared the first look of her upcoming film Neerja, a biopic on Neerja Bhanot - the daredevil flight attendant of Pan Am.
Sonam plays the role of Bhanot, who lost her life trying to save the lives of passengers from terrorists on board the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 on September 5, 1986.
Calling the film ‘most special’, the Khoobsurat actress shared a photograph of her first look on Twitter.
Sporting a uniform, red lips with shoulder-length straight hair neatly pinned up, Sonam is seen smiling in the photograph, which she captioned: “Hello everyone! This is me as Neerja! in our tribute to Neerja Bhanot. This is my most special film...thank you @foxstarhindi @blinglive.” For the film’s director Ram Madhvani, making “‘Neerja’ is an emotional journey for all of us”.
Produced by Fox Star Studios and Bling Unplugged, the story and screenplay of “Neerja” has been written by Saiwyn Quadras. Shabani Azmi plays a very crucial role in the film alongside Sonam. “When we heard the script of Neerja’, we immediately knew we wanted to make the film. It’s the kind of content that Fox Star instinctively believes in and wants to back,” Rucha Pathak, Fox Star Studios, said.
