Question of the day [QOTD]:

Is Sonam Kapoor the right choice to play flight attendant Neerja Bhanot in the hijack drama?

[Madhu – Chandigarh]

Absolutely. Other than the fact that Sonam’s face cut bears a striking similarity to that of Neerja Bhanot, there is also a certain attitude that the actress demonstrates which makes her capable of bringing to screen the heroics of the departed brave-heart. As history knows, Neerja had demonstrated great courage in the midst of a hijack and it was her presence of mind tha ended up saving hundreds of passengers. To enact a role like this, a lady of substance needs to portray it well on screen and Sonam is just the right bet!

Moreover, age is also on Sonam’s side. Neerja was 22 years old when the tragedy that took her life struck. Though Sonam is 29, she looks much younger. There are only a few other actresses in Bollywood who boast of characteristic attributes that one associates with an airhostess or a flight attendant when it comes to physicality, body language and mannerisms. In that perspective, Sonam fits the bill perfectly. As for the acting part, she has managed to prove her credentials over the years and this could very well be a biopic that allows her to get her due in the industry.
