Woah! Now this is HUGE!
Right in the start of the year, Sonam Kapoor gave us a brilliant movie- Neerja, whose story will stay with us forever! Not only did Sonam win accolades for her performances, the film also enlightened us about Neerja Bhanot- The Forgotten Hero. And now, after winning hearts across the country, the diva is all set to head to the Indian Film Festival Melbourne 2016! Yes, you read that right! Sonam's film Neerja will be screened at the film festival, the theme of which this year is women empowerment.
Neerja will be screened at the film festival for the Australian filmmakers and students. She is also going to have a discussion with the students after the film's screening.
One of the biggest women-centric films of this year, Neerja also starred Shekhar Ravjiani in the lead role. We hope the movie gets same amount of love that it received in India!
Neerja, directed by Ram Madhvani, speaks of Neerja Bhanot's courage, valour and bravery and a never-dying spirit within her that made her save the lives of 359 of the 379 passengers who were on-board the Pan Am Flight 73. The plane was hijacked but most of the passengers survived, all thanks to Neerja, who died saving them on-board.
On the work front, Sonam Kapoor will next be seen in Veere Di Wedding which also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role. The film will go on floors this month.
