Sonam Kapoor was the chief guest at the Republic Day flag hoisting ceremony at Bombay Scottish School. However, the actress had not been invited as an alumni of the institution, or a celebrity. Instead, she was asked to do the honours because Neerja Bhanot, who Sonam will be essaying in the forthcoming movie Neerja, was a student of the school.
Sonam, wearing a Khadi saree, reached the venue at 7:40 am sharp for the flag-hoisting ceremony and interaction with the students. Catch the pics right here:
