Neerja,featuring Sonam Kapoor,is one awaited project of 2016 and today the team launched the film’s trailer!
Based on slain air hostess Neerja Bhanot’s life, director Ram Madhvani’s film ‘Neerja’ features Sonam Kapoor as Neerja Bhanot . PA 73 was en route to Frankfurt and onward to New York City. Bhanot alerted the cockpit crew about the hijack and, as the plane was on the tarmac, the three-member American cockpit crew of pilot, co-pilot and the flight engineer fled from the aircraft. Bhanot, being the senior-most cabin crew member on board, took charge.
The trailer of Neerja gives a glimpse on the hijack that took place on the fateful Pan Am Airline that led to Neerja’s death.
The flight was hijacked by a terror group in Karachi and Neerja died saving three children when she fell in line of fire shielding them. The film also features Shabana Azmi and composer Shekhar Ravjiani.
