Drama

This is the story of Neerja Bhanot, a 22 year old part time model, who was the chief flight attendant on a flight that was hijacked by Palestinian extremists. Neerja had escaped an abusive marriage at a very young age and as a life change, decided to become an air hostess. Throughout the horrifying 17-hour situation, Neerja didn't succumb to her fears and instead she used her courage, wits and compassion to make sure that the passengers were protected, going as far as to hiding the passports of the American passengers. Through her swift thinking and brave actions, she managed to save the lives of 359 passengers and crew on board out of 379, all at the cost of her own life.
