Fox Star Studios is seriously considering NEERJA as India's official entry to the coveted Oscars..

The appreciation and accolades for NEERJA never ends. The on screen story of the 23-year-year-old Indian Braveheart Neerja Bhanot, the Pan Am flight purser who sacrificed her life while saving as many as 380 passengers and crew members around three decades ago,  may be India's official entry to the next Oscars.

Starring Sonam Kapoor in the lead role and outstandingly supported by Shabana Azmi, with Yogendra Tiku as the ideal father, Ram Madhvani's emotionally charged marriage of good virtue cinema and human spirits honed the talent of Sonam Kapoor as a terrific actress in NEERJA. A thanks giving conference was recently held and while elaborating on its future distribution strategies in the untapped overseas markets, Vijay Singh CEO, Fox Star Studios India said, “We had a well-planned strategy for such strong content driven film like NEERJA, starting with 700 screens in first week, thanks to the appreciation we increase the count to 1000+ in week 2, we are now strategically exploring other untapped markets of Bollywood as we feel NEERJA is a story that needs to reach the maximum”.

It must be noted that a similar practice was instigated by Fox Star Studios for the iconic SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE..

When quipped on the possibility of NEERJA to be lobbied as India's official entry for Oscars, Vijay Singh got excited and expressed that the movie has all the credentials and they are planning to instigate the process to be India's official entry..

Though the official confirmation from the studio and other concern is awaited, but we feel NEERJA - The flawless triumph of human spirit is the best choice right now and truly deserves the Oscar nod.. Sonam Kapoor may have not asked for more than this..
