Ram Madhvani has made a promising debut into the world of cinema with his directorial, ‘Neerja’. While the biopichas won the hearts of audience and critics alike, India’s neighbouring country Pakistan has so-far refused to release the film.
Absolute India quote Madhvani as having said to Agencies, “Ihope they reconsider our film. Anybody who has seen the film would know we have not shown anything against anyone. Any country would have gone through this problem… We are not showing any country in a bad light… All countries are facing terrorism today. We are hoping they will reconsider this film.”
Madhvani’s film is holding strong at the Indian box office in its second week, despite new releases. It tells the story of flight attendant Neerja Bhanot, who lost her life in the Pan Am 1986 hijack.
‘Neerja’ stars Sonam Kapoor in the lead role, along with Shabana Azmi.
