Movie Neerja starring Sonam Kapoor in the lead and directed by Ram Madhvani which is based on real story of Neerja Bhanot has been loved by the critics and viewers.
But as we know with all the praise, all the critics its bound to have some sort of controversies also, so same is happening with this biopic of Neerja Bhanot.
Pan Am Crew Member not in sync With Makers Of Neerja Bhanot Biopic, Calls It Fiction
Recently few crew members who were neglected in the movie, called Neerja movie a fictious tale that is far from the reality.
Nupur Abrol, who was also on the hijacked plane and was a crew member told that the movie is not real and more fiction.
She stated, “Yes, truly a very difficult moment. But also a difficult moment for all those flight attendants to accept the movie for what it is unfairly propagating. Neerja was a wonderful person and I think even her soul today would cringe at taking this undeserved adulation. Not fair to the FA’s who have in reality faced their ordeal!”
According to her unlike what they have shown in the movie, Neerja was not a hero, “Oh no! I was incidental in that plot. Astrid, Sherene, Sunshine and of course Massey were the real heroes of the day. I am glad today I can show my gratitude to them“, she said.
She got support by Astrid Lobo, one of the flight attendants of Pan Am 73, who wrote, “Nupoor Abrol I totally agree with you this movie is pure fiction not reality very unfair to all the rest of crew.”
Adele Pinto-Naicker, another flight attendant, wrote, “I whole heartedly agree. Nobody knows the real story we never discussed it as a base. We were given the golden handshake our golden wings immediately after the hijack. I truly believe that each and every crew member on that flight were brave and courageous.”
So now we have to see what the team of ‘Neerja’ has to say on these comments by the crew members.
