The absence of fear is not courage, but triumph over it, is courage. The one who conquers the fear and does not get afraid in difficult times is known as a brave man. And such a courageous message should be imparted to each and every human by the most powerful source of communication-Media and Films. Movies have tremendous influence in shaping young lives towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood.
Same is the example of an upcoming Indian biographical film in 2015, ‘NEERJA BHANOT’ which is directed by Ram Madhvani under the banner of ‘Fox Star Studios.’ The story is written by Saiwyn Quadras and produced by Atul Kasbekar. ‘Neerja Bhanot’ is based on the life of a flight attendant, Neerja Bhanot, who was shot dead by terrorists who hijacked the Mumbai-New york flight at Karachi on 5th September,1986.
Sonam kapoor is casted as Neerja Bhanot and Shabana Azmi as Neerja Bhanot’s mother. In the world, where the crime is at peak, the youngsters, especially the women, needs to be inspired to be brave and imbibe the virtue of courage. Neerja Bhanot fought with the terrorists to save the passengers of the flight. She being the senior-most cabin crew member on board, took charge, when she was told to collect all the passports and identify the Americans from the passengers, she instantly showed courage without fear and hid the passports of 41 Americans on board-some under the seat and rest down a rubbish chute. She also opened the emergency doors from which she could have easily jumped at first and saved herself, but instead, she helped number of passengers escape. While saving 3 children from a hail of bullets, Neerja Bhanot was shot dead.
Bhanot was recognised internationally as ‘The Heroine of Hijack’and is the youngest recipient of the ‘Ashok Chakra Award’, which is India’s most prestigious gallantry award for bravery during peace time. Sonam Kapoor feels blessed to do the role of Neerja Bhanot and is sure that the biopic will inspire young women of the country.
