Talking about the film, Aamir Khan said, “I had seen Neerja a few months back. Ram (director) had shown me the film. It’s a true story and Neerja was a very brave girl who showed fearlessness in tough situations. It’s a very inspiring film and it’s about fighting your fears. When a hijack happens and terrorists are in front of you, you feel scared yet how you overcome your fears and fight bravely is what the movie is all about. It’s all about overcoming your own fears.” (Also read: Not shown Pakistan in poor light in ‘Neerja’: Shabana Azmi)
