Actress Sonam Kapoor got emotional sharing her experiences of portraying the character of valiant flight attendant Neerja Bhanot at the trailer launch of her film “Neerja”.

Watch the trailer here:

Sonam’s eyes got moist while answering certain questions from the media and she struggled to control her emotions.

“Anything that is emotionally challenging kind of makes you grow as a human being. You learn how to be better through everything especially if something pushes you beyond a certain limit. Anything that Neerja Bhanot has brought into my life is being positive, it’s not strained me, it’s made me stronger,” she said.

Bhanot was awarded the Ashok Chakra for saving 359 lives from the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi in 1986, though at the cost of her own life.

Sonam was a bit skeptical as to whether she will be able to portray such strong character as she is just an ordinary girl. But Shanti Sivaram Maini, her agent and co-producer of the film, who came to her with the story, assured her that Bhanot was also an ordinary girl before her feat.

“And after that I was like, I better give this like 3000 percent. Not because of anything but because you owe it to her and her memory. And after I met her family, I owe it to her family, to be as honest as possible and do my very best,” said Sonam.

She feels Bhanot’s attachment to her family and her principles were aspects which she sees as common to her.

“Neerja” has been directed by Ram Madhvani and also stars Shabana Azmi.

Jared Leto calls Zack Snyder a ‘madman’

Los Angeles, Jan 19 : Actor Jared Leto says he enjoyed working with director Zack Snyder on his version of Justice League, known as the Snyder cut.

The actor will reprise the role of the Joker in the Snyder Cut of Justice League.

“He’s (Snyder) a warrior. He’s a madman. I really love him,” said Leto, reports contactmusic.com.

“With every character I play – I don’t know if it’s because I work so intently and I tend to dig really deep and put a lot of time and energy into it – but when I’m done playing with them, done playing the parts, I do miss them a little bit,” he added.

Leto had played the Joker in the 2016 release, Suicide Squad. He loves the chance to play the part of the DC Comics villain again.

“You do all this work and then you’re done, so it is nice to revisit things. You know, parts like the Joker, like Sparma (his role in ‘The Little Things’), what’s really great about those roles is they can be intense and dark, but there’s also a lot of freedom and abandon there,” said Leto.

“And that’s really fun for me, it’s fun for the other actors, it’s fun for the crew. With both of those roles, there was lots of laughter on the set and a lot of joy because you would improvise and say something really funny. So it’s always quite a lot of fun when you can hear people cracking up on the other side of the camera, and I like that quite a bit,” he added.
