Sonam Kapoor’s ‘Neerja’ might have been a hit in the country, but the actress is upset over the flick’s ban in Pakistan and over the fact that her Pak fans are watching pirated copy of the movie. During a recent press conference, the 30-year-old actress said, “The film has not released officially there, but it is very sad that this has happened. Today I was doing a live chat and there are several of my fans who are from Pakistan. Since my films have done well in Pakistan, they’re all watching pirated copies of the film over there,” reports the Dawn.
She added that this is a matter of sadness and she is very disappointed.
Putting the chit on Indo-Pak politics, Sonam said, “I can’t understand it, but I think this is all politics between both sides. I had said this before, there is no place for politics in art and sports and unfortunately that’s what has happened.”
Directed by Ram Madhvani, ‘Neerja’ is a biopic of the heroic air hostess Neerja Bhanot, who sacrificed her life to save passengers of a hijacked Pan Am flight 73 in September 1986.
