Sonam Kapoor really impressed with the reactions to ‘Neerja’

At the Box-Office, Ram Madhvani’s ‘Neerja’ gained commercial and social relevance. This movie has been popular all across the world. Mainly, this movie was based on the memory of 23 years old girl who died by saving 359 lives. Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor played this great role in this movie. On screen, she played her character with brave heart and humbling feeling.

She revealed her feelings as, “I am overwhelmed with the reactions to ‘Neerja’. People are reacting to a true story of courage that has been brought alive through a film that has its heart in the right place. It is first time when I saw good reviews. ‘Neerja’ experience is unprecedented. Believe me, I did just what I truly believed in, and as a director, Ram, gave me the leeway to do that. I am a director’s actor. Whenever I’ve got good reviews, it’s because the directors have allowed me to soar. Cinema is a director’s medium. As far as I’m concerned, it is not as if I changed what I did earlier. I have put in as much, but at the end of the day, if the director cannot translate it for you, it doesn’t work.” Aisha, ‘Raanjhanaa’, ‘Khoobsurat’ and now ‘Neerja’”.

Sonam said, “I was 23 when I did ‘Aisha’. And I knew from then that I would have to keep evolving with my choice of films and roles. Otherwise, I would become extinct.”

Moreover, she got tips and advice from popular celebrities. She is extremely happy with the results of this movie.
