NEERJA, a biopic on the life of Neerja Bhanot, a 23 year old airhostess, who gave up her life trying to save the lives of 379 hijacked passengers on PanAm flight in Karachi in 1986, is set to release on February 19, 2016. Neerja posthumously became the youngest recipient of India's highest civilian award for bravery, The Ashok Chakra. Pakistan also bestowed the prestigious Tamgha-e-Insaaniyat award to Neerja for showing incredible human kindness during the hijack.


Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, announced, 'Fox Star Studios and Bling Unplugged is proud to announce that we will be releasing Neerja on Feb 19 for the people the world over to know and celebrate the story of a 23-year-old girl who found courage and self-sacrifice in an extraordinary moment in her life. Neerja is one of the unsung heroes of India whose story should be an inspiration for everyone. This is her story.'

“India tends to forget so many of its heroes. It's heroines even more so. Neerja's story is one that just had to be told and we at Bling Unplugged are delighted and proud that it's our maiden co-production. We could not have asked for a better partner in Fox Star' said Atul Kasbekar, producer of Bling Unplugged.

NEERJA is being produced by Fox Star Studios and Bling Unplugged. It has been directed by the celebrated ad film director Ram Madhvani, who had earlier directed LET'S TALK in 2002. Sonam Kapoor is playing the role of Neerja and acclaimed actress Shabana Azmi plays the role of Neerja's mother.
