And this, she says, is stressing her out. Asked if she has taken on anything new, Sonam told media: "No, I haven't signed anything and it's stressing me out that I haven't."

In 'Neerja', Sonam played a real life character --  a flight attendant who displays bravado on a hijacked plane to save the lives of passengers by risking her own.

Sonam admits that the portrayal of women in films has become stronger over the years, but she still feels that in terms of remuneration, discrimination against actresses exists.

Talking about the pay disparity, she said: "It is slowly changing, but it's a far way off despite the numbers that 'Neerja' has done and despite the numbers my films have done."
