Recently, while talking to Indian Express, Sonam shared how challenging it was for her, to portray the character of Neerja. She says,"With every film, I would say that it was my most difficult. I think, if with every film I don't challenge myself over and over again then I will get bored."
"So, each movie is equally challenging for me. Definitely, since Neerja is my latest film, it was the most challenging. I am also more emotionally attached to it because it is a real person and to live up to that expectations it was challenging, yes."
