'Neerja' is a biopic on the late Neerja Bhanot who lost her life while saving others on a hijacked plane.

Sonam feels that playing the character has changed her perception towards women who take up the job of an air hostess.

"I never thought of becoming an air hostess. But I was getting trained for this film and I must say that the respect I had for air hostesses has increased a lot now," Sonam said.

"I realised that the 60 percent training is for safety and emergency. There is a hijack training, safety training and being in the service industry, you really feel that you have a duty towards your clients and guests."

"So, I really want to tell people to listen to what the flight attendants say and follow the instructions because they know what they are doing," she added.

'Neerja' also stars Shabana Azmi and Shekhar Ravjiani among others.
