"Ram Madhvani is a brilliant ad-maker and everyone including Aamir Khan and Boman Irani wants to work with him. But he didn't want to make something which he could not believe in, so he decided to make this biopic on Neerja Bhanot".
The biographical film also stars Shabana Azmi, who plays Neerja's mother.
"It is a brilliant film and it is probably the best film I have done in my life. It is about a hijack, but I cannot speak much about it right now," Kapoor said
The first look of Sonam Kapoor was released recently. Her look garnered a lot of praises from all sections of the industry. Fox Star Studios is yet to officially announce the release date of the film.
