The youngest-ever Nobel Prize winner Malala stepped out to watch Neerja at a private screening in London yesterday, and no one seemed happier about her attendance than the film’s star Sonam Kapoor.
Sonam Kapoor put up a picture of the Pakistani education activist, who continues her advocacy of children’s education despite the 2012 near fatal attack on her in Swat.
"Malala said ‘I am stronger than fear’ and for Neerja ‘fear gave her courage! Thank you Malala Yousafzai for attending a private screening of Neerja in London. I’m so glad you liked the film," Sonam wrote.
The film Neerja is a biopic of flight attendant Neerja Bhanot, who lost her life while saving others on the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 in September 1986.
This isn’t the first time that Malala’s been out and about on a film jaunt. She’s earlier given two thumbs-up to Deepika Padukone’s Piku and Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan and has also confessed to being a die-hard SRK fan.
Pakistani activist for female education and Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai is the latest renowned personality to join the league of those who enjoyed Sonam Kapoor's Neerja.
