The recently released Sonam Kapoor starrer ‘Neerja’ has been receiving positive reviews for the script and Kapoor’s portrayal of Pam Am, purser Neerja Bhanot. In a tribute to Bhanot, Amul recently released an advertisement for Amul Chocolate, which featured the real Neerja Bhanot.
About Neerja Bhanot and ‘Neerja’
Neerja Bhanot was a purser for Pan Am airlines, who lost her life when defending plane passengers from a terrorist high jacking. After her death, Bhanot was awarded the Ashok Chakra, the highest peacetime military award.
A few days ago, a biopic of her life and of her actions during the high jacking was released, staring Sonam Kapoor.
The film has generated a fresh interest in Neerja Bhanot and her story. Amidst this interest, Amul released the ad in which Bhanot plays a mother. In the ad, a young boy sings ‘Too old for tricycles and too young to be a pilot’, to which Bhanot replies “but I think you’re just right for Amul chocolate.”
Till now the ad has received 20,153 hits on YouTube and has been covered by major news organisations across India.
