Sonam Kapoor recently won a Special Mention National Award for her performance in last year’s ‘Neerja’. The actress has said she’s feeling encouraged to do more such films.
“I think I have been doing content-driven films for a couple of years right now, but obviously it (National Award) is an encouragement to doing more of them,” said Kapoor, according to Hindustan Times.
Talking more about the award, which she will receive on Wednesday, Kapoor added, “It is such a a huge validation for doing a film like ‘Neerja’, but at the same time it was more important to make a film like ‘Neerja’ which spoke about human spirit and compassion. A film like ‘Neerja’ winning an award says that human spirit and human compassion and kindness at the end of the day should be our purpose”.
“My parents are coming with me. I think they are very excited. I am more happy for them and for Ram (director Ram Madhvani) because I think Ram really wanted me to win the award and I think my parents are very proud,” she concluded.
