Some of the biggest names in the Hindi film industry namely Aamir Khan, Vidya Balan, Rajkumar Hirani and Anil Kapoor (to name a few) inspired the cast and crew on set during the making of this incredible story.
Sonam Kapoor the actress who plays the role of Neerja said, “In a lot of ways, with every phase we needed motivation. It was exhausting and we were shooting 16 hours days, everyday. We were taking long, long takes and we didn’t take breaks. So every week or every four days, after a phase was over, a celebrity will come and give us some motivation, saying this is a story that needs to be told, so give it your 200%.”
Neerja is the courageous story of a 23-year-old girl – an air hostess – who lost her life while saving passengers from terrorists on board the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 on 5th September 1986.
Out in cinemas on the 19th February 2016, Neerja is produced by Fox Star Studios and co-produced by Bling Unplugged.
