The brave Sonam turns Neerja Bhanot……glam-courageous role!
Sonam will be playing Neerja Bhanot, India youngest awardee of the Ashok Chakra in her next flick Neerja. A lot of hard work has gone into making her resemble the iconic brave heart of India Neerja Bhanot, as she captioned the photo on her Instagram account. “Hello everyone! This is me as Neerja! in our tribute to Neerja Bhanot. This is my most special film..thank you @foxstarhindi.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Neerja Bhanot, she was a flight attendant on a Pan Am flight that was hijacked in Karachi in 1986 on September 5th.
She was a vibrant soul, who was a part-time model and a full-time flight attendant. When the flight got hijacked on that ill-fated day, she was the last one to leave the flight, unlike the captains who fled the scene on the first hint.
She did everything possible within her means to save the lives of the passengers. She died while saving the lives of three kids from a spray of bullets. She saved 360 lives alone and did not think of her safety even for a minute.
We hope Sonam Kapoor can justify her role and allow the audiences to relive that sad, yet inspiring incident again.
