Neerja Trailer with English Subtitles

The people at Fox Star Hindi, which had quite a disastrous year with the release of Bombay Velvet, have just uploaded the trailer to their Neerja Bhanot bio plane hijack film, which stars everyone’s favorite-to-rag-on star-kid, Sonam Kapoor.

As you may know, or not, I’ve warmed up to Sonam this past year… so hats off. The story is also great and so worth telling~ simply titled Neerja, it tells the story of a 22-year-old Pan Am flight attendant who lost her life on September 5th 1986 when her flight, doing a stop in Karachi, was hijacked by four heavily-armed terrorists. The three American crew members left the aircraft, and she took charge of the situation saving the lives of the passengers, several of whom were American and were the target.

The film also stars Shabana Azmi as her mother, and Shekhar Ravjiani.

Neerja is set to open on February 19th 2016.
