Sonam Kapoor has done a variety of films but it’d be safe to say that for most of us, Sonam starrer Neerja continues to be one of the most celebrated films of the actress. And yesterday, on Neerja Bhanot’s death anniversary, Sonam Kapoor paid homage to the late flight attendant. For all those who don’t know, Neerja Bhanot passed away on September 5, 1986 and therefore, Sonam K Ahuja paid homage to Neerja as she posted a photo of her on Instagram and alongside Neerja’s photo, Sonam wrote, “Her life was a gift to us all. #RememberingNeerjaBhanot.”

Talking about the film, Neerja was based on the real-life story of a flight attendant named Neerja Bhanot and in the film, Sonam played the role of Neerja Bhanot. The 2016 film Neerja opened up to wonderful reviews, and the film received several awards, including two National Film Awards and Sonam received a Special Mention for her role in the biopic at the 64th National Film Awards.

Besides Sonam Kapoor, Neerja also starred Shabana Azmi, Jim Sarbh, Shekhar Ravjiani and Yogendra Tiku in lead roles.

Neerja chronicled the real story of Neerja, an Indian flight attendant who laid her life to save other passengers when the airline Pan American World Airways was hijacked by terrorists during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan, on September 5, 1986. Neerja saved the lives of 360 passengers on Pan Am Flight 73.
