“When there are directors like Ram, you don’t need to worry. The work is effortless and stress-free. I enjoyed a lot… It is a beautiful film,” he added.

“Neerja”, a biopic on the late Neerja Bhanot who lost her life while saving others on a hijacked plane, stars Sonam Kapoor as the protagonist.

Talking about her, Shekhar said: “She is fantastic and she has been a friend since I did ‘I Hate Luv Storys’, for which I had composed the music. After I got to know that Sonam is Neerja Bhanot, and that Ram Madhvani is directing, I was delighted.”
