A known name in the field of advertisement, Ram Madhvani has an interesting close connection with Neerja Bhanot.

The advertisement industry's ace is gearing up to make some space in Bollywood with his biopic NEERJA starring Sonam Kapoor. Based on the fearless young Indian flight attendant Neerja Bhanot who fought for the lives of her passengers in September 1986, Neerja is certainly a story that needs to be told.

In an encounter with the ambitious filmmaker, Ram Madhvani discloses his interesting connection with Neerja Bhanot.

The director says, “I knew about Neerja and what she has done. So when Atul Kasbekar met me with this idea to do a biopic on Neerja Bhanot, I immediately said yes before he could finish.”

Spilling beans on his close connection with the youngest recipient of India's highest peacetime military award for bravery – The Ashok Chakra, Ram Madhvani shares, “When I was growing up, I knew Neerja Bhanot. She was a model and featured in an advertisement shot by my partner. In fact the day Neerja shot for my partner's commercial it was September 05, 1986. Neerja finished the shoot, went home and attended the Pan Am Flight 73 which got hijacked and the rest is history.”

Though Ram Madhani didn't get the chance to know Neerja Bhanot personally, a close friend of Ram's wife knew Neerja Bhanot very well and they were childhood buddies says Ram.

The biopic gave them the chance to meet Neerja's family and Ram Madhvani with Sonam Kapoor along with his writer Saiwyn Quadras.

The emotions ran high when Ram Madhvani and his NEERJA team met the family of Neerja Bhanot and Ram spoke about his connection to them. Hope the movie also infuses the same amount of emotion amongst its audience.
