The makers of Neerja are giving it all that they have got. From actress Sonam Kapoor touring colleges to meeting real-life hero Neerja Bhanot mother, the cast and crew have not held back any promotion punches. But of the lot, what has been the most heart wrenching is the last voice recording of Neerja Bhanot.
As part of promo material for the movie, Fox Studios released the voice recording of Neerja Bhanot. It is unclear if the recording was from the September 5, but it is certainly tear-jerking.t
Sonam who had tweeted the video describes the voice of the 23-year-old as ‘ The voice of Courage’, and we certainly don’t deny the fact.
