Neerja Bhanot’s mother gave a special gift to Sonam Kapoor.
Neerja’s mother has gifted a yellow dupatta to the actress!
Sonam Kapoor who would soon be seen in Ram Madhvani’s upcoming Neerja was loved in the trailer of the film that was released by the makers. The trailer had left a strong impact amongst audiences and it also garnered tremendous response from across. Before beginning shooting for the film, the Neerja Team met Neerja Bhanot’s Mother and Brothers in Chandigarh. During the meet, when Rama met Sonam, she almost felt that her daughter has walked in. Rama then gifted a yellow dupatta to Sonam.
Neerja’s mother, had bought a bright yellow dupatta to gift her daughter as yellow was Neerja’s favourite colour. She couldn’t give it to her back then as Neerja never returned. Rama who was very aware of Neerja’s choice had bought a bright yellow coloured dupatta to gift it to her daughter. However as the tragedy happened, Rama never got a chance to gift her the present. Sonam was extremely honoured and was full of mixed emotions. The actress will be wearing the dupatta at one of the screenings of the film.
