Actress Sonam Kapoor says winning the Best Actress award for Neerja is special and she’ll cherish the moment forever.
Sonam won the Critics’ Award For Best Actor (Female) for her performance in Neerja at the 62 Jio Filmfare Awards. Directed by Ram Madhvani and produced by Fox Star Studios and Bling Unplugged, Neerja featured Sonam in the lead. She played late flight attendant Neerja Bhanot who lost her life while saving others.
Sonam tweeted, “Winning the best actress award for Neerja, was a truly special moment… But it was made more special because Aanand L Rai gave it to me… love you sir. Thank you Filmfare. I’ll forever cherish this moment.”
Actress Athiya Shetty also congratulated Sonam with a tweet. “Congratulations to the kindest one, Sonam Kapoor. Nobody could have played Neerja with such honesty and love. Shine on,” it read.
Fashion designer Masaba Mantena said Sonam had taken the audience on “a magical, emotional roller coaster” with Neerja. Filmmaker Satish Kaushik said Sonam deserved it. “Heartiest congratulations Sonam. Many more to come. More power to you. Very happy for you,” actor Rajkummar Rao said.
