"I feel that women today, here and in India's smaller cities, rural areas and everywhere, are our everyday heroes. They are bold, brave, standing out and empowering themselves. They are compassionate, giving and sensitive to the needs of others around," Sonam told reporters here.
She will be seen in 'Neerja' a biopic of Neerja Bhanot, a Pan Am flight attendant who died saving passengers on a hijacked plane.
Sonam said Neerja represents the Indian women, who are ready to face any challenge with courage.
'Neerja', directed by Ram Madhvani, hits theaters tomorrow.
