The much anticipated first look of Sonam Kapoor’s next has finally been revealed. Sonam Kapoor has shared the first look of her upcoming film ‘Neerja’, a biopic on Neerja Bhanot – the daredevil flight attendant of Pan Am. Directed by Ram Madhvani, the film went on floors last week at a studio in Mumbai.
Neerja Bhanot, was the youngest recipient of the Ashok Chakra, who was murdered while saving the passengers from terrorists on board the hijacked Pan Am Mumbai-New York Flight 73 on 5 September 1986. She was a senior flight purser for Pan Am or Pan American Airways, an American airline which was the largest in the world until the company collapsed in 1991.
Produced by Fox Star Studios and Bling Unplugged, the story and screenplay of Neerja has been written by Saiwyn Quadras while Sanyukta Chawla Shaikh has written the dialogues. Shabani Azmi too stars in the filmi in a very crucial role.
With her cute little short hair, Soonam looks quite similar to Bhanot in the first look which she shared it on her social networking page. A special set of Flight 73 was also built at a Mumbai studio for the movie’s shooting. Hope Soonam gets a huge success and recognition through this biopic!!
