Neerja is a powerful film that is based on the brave airhostess Neerja Bhanot's life and her traumatic death during the unfortunate event when terrorists hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi, Pakistan.
Sonam Kapoor essays the role of Neerja and she is the sole lead in the movie. Music director and singer Shekar plays the small role of Neerja's romantic partner in the movie.
The film is very intense and is based on a real life incident when Neerja put up a brave front and saved many lives.
"Sonam has done a very good job... this film is best so far. With this film she will be able to establish herself as an actress. Shabana Azmi (who essays Sonam's mother) was brilliant. I get emotional soon and seeing the ending of the film, I had tears in my eyes. It is a very nice film and I wish all the best to the team," Aamir told reporters at the screening of Neerja.
"I had seen the film sometime back as Ram is a good friend of mine. He is a talented director. It is a true story and she was a brave girl. It is an inspiring film," Aamir said.
Talking about his fears in real life, the 50-year-old star says, "I am scared of lot of things. The biggest fear is about family... when my family... wife, kids and parents go out, I do get tensed."
