Sonam Kapoor is all geared up for the release of her next film, Neerja. From promotional events to song launches, the actor is making sure Neerja is right at the top of her list of priorities right now.
Along with Shabana Azmi, who plays her mother in Neerja, and director Ram Madhvani, Sonam has been all around Mumbai, taking the tale of Neerja Bhanot to people. It was during the promotions at a suburban studio in the Maharashtra capital that Sonam and the Neerja team received a pleasant surprise.
It was Akshay Kumar who dropped in to say hi to Sonam, Shabana and Ram. The Airlift actor was in the vicinity for some work. In his brief interaction with the Neerja team, Kumar wished them good luck.
Last month, it was Akshay’s Airlift that brought on celluloid a true tale of heroism, courage and patriotism. The actor, whose Airlift touched the hearts of Indians all across the planet, was heard saying that he looked forward to watching Neerja. This film, after all, is a tribute to another hero who laid down her life for the safety of others.
Based on the story of Neerja Bhanot, who sacrificed her life while saving passengers from terrorists onboard the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 on September 5, 1986, the film is slated for a February 19 release.
