"Neerja is Sonam's best performance till date. She is outstanding. Shabana Azmi is a legend and there is no actress like her. It is an empowering story. I would want every mother and daughter to watch this film. It is a fantastic film. Everyone cried during the film. It is a brave story of a brave girl," said Karan Johar
Of all the promo material that has been released for this Fridays film Neerja, this is surely the most evocative. It is not clear if the recording is from the fateful flight. Neerja Bhanot, the 23-year-old flight attendant who was killed in the 1986 hijacking of a Pan Am flight, is played by actress Sonam Kapoor in the movie
"I have always been fearless. But the most amazing thing about Neerja was that she gained courage through her fear. She feared for her life. But she still did what she thought was right. She stood on the side of doing the right thing. That shows incredible strength of character," said Sonam
Sonam Kapoor, who plays slain stewardess Neerja Bhanot in her upcoming film Neerja, asked fans and followers to post video messages about their biggest fear. Earlier, Shahid Kapoor, Sonam's father Anil Kapoor, her Dolly Ki Doli producer Arbaaz Khan, director Homi Adajania and actress Huma Qureshi, had also shared their fears
Sonam, whose Neerja releases on February 19, had requested her fans and followers to post their stories of fear and courage in short videos. Shahid Kapoor, Sonam's actor-father Anil Kapoor, filmmaker Arbaaz Khan and director Homi Adajania too have responded to the 30-year-old actress
The actress, who was launching a song from her upcoming film Neerja at a college, was asked to name her favourite co-star. When the crowd chanted Salman's name, she answered, "Well, you guys got it right. It's Salman Khan, he's so bloody hot"
Sonam was quoted as saying, "I love Coldplay's music and so does the world. It was a huge honour to be a part of the video. It's a great concept and I had a lot of fun shooting for it." The actress, who reportedly plays a 'mystical muse' in the Ben Mor-directed video, filmed her part in Mumbai in October
"A lot of actresses are abusing me for it. I remember a very big actress telling me, 'Sonam, why did you do this. You know how much money I am paying my stylist right now'. I was like, 'I don't pay my stylist, it's my sister or I just style myself.' You just have to be yourself," Sonam Kapoor revealed
The trailer of Neerja, starring Sonam Kapoor in the titular role, will be attached to Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale. The actress posted on microblogging site Twitter: "Thank you @iamsrk & @RedChilliesEnt for giving the film #Neerja this platform! Catch the trailer of #Neerja with #Dilwale on 18th December!"
"Sonam is the best style icon in Bollywood. Nobody can be compared to her," Athiya, daughter of Suniel Shetty, said. When asked about being compared to Sonam, she said: "Sonam has made a mark of her own. She is beautiful and one of the most talented actresses we have today"
In a goofy video Instagrammed by Shilpa, the actresses can be seen lip syncing the song Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which is picturised on actors Sonam Kapoor and Salman Khan. They were celebrating Karva Chauth at the residence of actor Anil Kapoor, younger brother of Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor. Shilpa called dancing with Sridevi a 'dream come true.'
Katrina Kaif, who co-endorses a cosmetic brand with Sonam Kapoor, has reportedly been approached by the actress for the role of a parallel lead in a new chick flick. Katrina is apparently considering the offer quite seriously and will soon be sitting for a film narration session as well
