When trailers of Neerja released, everyone was sceptical about Sonam Kapoor doing justice to the role. But the actress silenced her critics after the movie hit theatres. She proved that she's more than just an icon for glamorous bags, shoes and clothes. Kapoor has been showered with words of appreciation for her performance in the film. Recently, Neerja Bhanot's classmates put up a status thanking Kapoor for bringing the braveheart back to life on the silver screen. The actress also credited director Ram Madhvani for all the praises being showered on her. This is how she responded, according to The Indian Express. "Ram this is all youâ€¦ Thank you for making me an honorary alumniâ€¦ I humbly accept this beautiful tribute to #neerja by her pals of #bombayscottish class of â€™78 â€¦ This has truly truly moved me."
