Actor Sonam Kapoor's performance in Neerja is undoubtedly her career best up till now. Sonam bagged several awards for her performance in Neerja. The entire starcast of the film received a lot of appreciation for their performances in the film, especially veteran actor Shabana Azmi. She played the role of Neerja's mother in the film and her speech in the climax of the movie left most of the viewers spellbound and teary eyed. Apart from that, there are multiple aspects of the film which made it as realistic as it could get.
The film Neerja is a biopic based on the life of Neerja Bhanot, a 22-year-old Indian flight attendant who died while saving passengers on Pan Am Flight 73 which had been hijacked by terrorists during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan, on September 5, 1986. Sonam Kapoor garnered a lot of appreciation from not only critics but also the audiences for the role. Apart from Sonam's performance, Jim Sarbh's performance was equally lauded by everyone.
Everything from acting to looks made the movie very realistic for the audience. Sonam Kapoor's look in the movie highly resembled Neerja Bhanot's look which made it easier for the audience to connect with the movie. The movie hit the right chords as not only was Neerja critically acclaimed but also did exceedingly well at the box office.
