The Prem Ratan Dhan Payo actress will soon be seen playing the role of the late braveheart…

Sonam Kapoor is slated to play the role of late PanAm flight attendant Neerja Bhanot in the upcoming biopic based on the latter’s life. For the uninitiated, PanAm Flight 73 attendant Neerja Bhanot sacrificed her life to protect the passengers aboard the plane which was hijacked in Karachi in 1986. Posthumously, she also won the Ashok Chakra award. The Fox Star Studios film which is being helmed by Ram Madhvani will retell the story of India’s young braveheart.

Sonam shared the first look of herself as Neerja Bhanot. She is seen wearing the same hairdo as the late flight attendant. Will she be the right choice for this role? We think so because Sonam and Neerja’s faces bear uncanny resemblance. Also, this film would be a big chance for Kapoor to prove her mettle as an actor as it would be one of the most important films of her life.

As she shared her first look as Neerja Bhanot, Sonam also said, “Hello everyone! This is me as Neerja! in our tribute to Neerja Bhanot. This is my most special film…”

We wish the actress all the luck and hope that the film turns out to be great. How did you like Sonam’s look as Neerja Bhanot?
