India’s legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was highly impressed by actress Sonam Kapoor’s performance in Bollywood movie ‘Neerja’. Sachin attended the Mumbai premiere of ‘Neerja’ on 17th February 2016, two days before the release of the movie.

The movie is based on the true life of young flight attendant Neerja Bhanot who rescued all her passengers from Pan AM Flight 73 after it was hijacked in Karachi. But finally, she couldn’t save her own life as she was shot dead by the hijackers on 5th September 1986, just the two days before her 23rd birthday.

Later, Neerja was posthumously awarded the Ashoka Chakra Award by the Government of India. She became the youngest recipient of Ashok Chakra Award which is India’s highest peacetime military award for bravery.

The movie ‘Neerja’ was directed by Ram Madhvani while it was produced by Atul Kasbekar. Leading Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor plays the role of Neerja while Shabana Azmi plays Neerja’s mother’s role. The movie is released on 19th February 2016 for the general public.

After watching the movie, former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar expressed his sentiments through the social media, Twitter.

Apart from Sachin, another Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh also attended in that premier. After watching that movie, Yuvraj also thanked everybody through his official twitter account.
