Sonam Kapoor is playing the lead role in a biopic on the life of young and brave role model Neerja Bhanot. Neerja Bhanot is no more, but she will always be remembered as India's youngest braveheart. She died at the age of 23, whilst saving the lives of people on board Pan Am Flight 73. Neerja was a crew member on the flight which was hijacked in Karachi on Sepember 5, 1986.

As Sonam happily poses for the shutterbugs, all dressed up as flight purser Neerja Bhanot, one cannot help but remember the brave Neerja who laid down her life, saving that of people around her. She saved the lives of 360 people singlehandedly. Ironically, the pilots fled the plane as soon as Neerja brought them the news of hijack! This bravery is why Neerja Bhanot became the first and youngest recipient of Ashok Chakra, India's peacetime gallantry award.

This is one film everyone should definitely watch!
