Considered a hero by countries across the globe, she was the youngest receiver of Ashok Chakra, India's highest civilian award for bravery.
It had been more than a year that Kasbekar tweeted about this, and if reports are to be believed, he is making a biopic on Neerja’s life, and Sonam Kapoor has been roped in to play the braveheart on screen.

Atul will be producing this movie along with Fox Star Studios, and it will be directed by Ram Madhwani. Other details about this project have not been frozen as of yet.

Sonam, who was last seen in Dolly Ki Doli, is busy shooting for Rajshri's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo opposite Salman Khan.
