The Punjab and Haryana high court on Friday put the producer of national award-winning movie ‘Neerja’ on notice on a plea alleging criminal conspiracy by the braveheart flight purser Neerja Bhanot’s family.
It’s only rare that a biopic is appreciated by the people close to the person who’s biopic it is… But in the case of Neerja, the braveheart’s brothers are very happy with the movie!
Ram Madhvani based his biopic on the life of Neerja Bhanot, a braveheart who also happens to be the first civilian recipient of the Ashok Chakra for her role in saving the lives of 359 passengers aboard the hijacked PanAm flight on September 5, 1986.
Sonam Kapoor-starrer Neerja, based on real incidents during the hijacking of the Pan Am Flight 73 at the Karachi airport in 1986, has been banned in Pakistan allegedly for showing the country in poor light.
Shabana Azmi plays Sonam Kapoor’s mother in their upcoming film Neerja. Her character is that of Neerja Bhanot’s mother Rama Bhanot.
