Akhil Bhanot and Aneesh Bhanot – the real life brothers of late air hostess Neerja Bhanot – will attend the trailer launch of “Neerja“, a biopic on their sister here on Wednesday.
“Neerja”, which stars actress Sonam Kapoor in the title role, will reveal how Neerja emerged as a hero and saved the lives of many during an airplane hijack.
Just to take part in the launch event, Neerja’s brothers will fly down from Chandigarh.
Directed by Ram Madhvani, the film is slated to release next year.
The Fox Star Studios film is about Neerja Bhanot, a PanAm chief purser who was gunned down by terrorists when Flight 73 was hijacked to Karachi in 1986.
