Mumbai, Jan 20 (IANS) Courage is looking fear right in the eye, and that’s just what Sonam Kapoor does in the first poster of Bollywood film “Neerja” — an upcoming biopic on valiant flight attendant Neerja Bhanot.
Sonam shared the poster on Twitter, and wrote: “And here it is: The first poster of #Neerja. So proud! Film out on February 19.”
Sonam’s character is seen being held at gunpoint, but she is seen standing with an undaunted streak, staring at the attacker whose face is yet to be revealed.
The debut poster, which reads ‘Fear gave her courage’, also features an airplane cabin full of people and an armed hijacker.
The Ram Madhvani directorial features Sonam as Neerja Bhanot, a Pan Am chief purser who was gunned down by terrorists when Flight 73 was hijacked in Karachi in 1986. She saved a lot of lives while losing her own.
As the proud father of Sonam, veteran actor Anil Kapoor shared: “This poster is a story in itself..#Neerja’s courage & strength immemorialized forever! @sonamakapoor.”
Even actress Shabana Azmi tweeted about the film, saying: “She held bravery in her eyes and courage in her heart! Here is the first poster of #Neerja @foxstarhindi.”
