When asked which compliment she liked the most, Sonam replied, " (Of) My director (Ram Madhvani). I ask him everyday, 'Ram I was okay na', 'I am fine right'. I am a director's actor. If my director is satisfied, then for me the job is well done. At the end of the day, If I'm doing good work, it's because of the director and if I do poor work, it is because of the director."

Present at a screening for the flight attendants of Indigo Airlines, she said that she personally went through training of a flight attendant to portray the character based on Neerja Bhanot's life, and said that about 60 percent of the training is for the safety purposes and the rest for the services aspects.

Sonam had recently tweeted that she was disheartened that the film won't release in Pakistan, considering the fact that the country was the first to award Neerja the Tamgha-e-Insaniyat for bravery.

Sonam's mother in the film, Shabana Azmi also had said Pakistan wasn't shown in poor light.

Sonam reiterated the same. "It's very unfortunate, because they haven't let the film reach the censor board for it to be approved or disapproved. They haven't even given us that leeway. I hope people around the world watch the film, and realize that we have treated everyone fairly, in fact we have shown Pakistan in great light.

The film released on February 19.
