‘Neerja’ was touted as one of her best performances, since she started her Bollywood career. Her portrayal as the fearless air hostess Neerja Bhanot was not just spot on but moved us to tears.


The National Awards 2017 honoured her with a special mention for her role in the film and she stated that it was truly “sweet and encouraging”.

“My mother (Sunita) told me that I had received a special mention and I found it sweet and encouraging. I was like ‘is it a consolation award?’ She told me to speak to Anupam Kher uncle as he received it for ‘Daddy’. I spoke to Shabana (Azmi) aunty as well about it ,” Sonam added.


Sonam will be attending the ceremony along with her parents in Delhi today.

Talking about her first major milestone, she said “I don’t think I did ‘Neerja’ for rewards. The whole film signifies the idea of human compassion, kindness and strength especially in this day and age when there is so much competition around and it is about survival of the fittest. It is so important that a film like ‘Neerja’ gets an honour like this. It is really great.”


It will be a role reversal for Sonam and Anil, as she has already appeared on the National awards’ stage to receive an award for her dad in the year 2007.
