The movie had won two National awards for Best Feature Film in Hindi and Special Mention for Kapoor, and had won six awards at the 62nd Filmfare Awards.
The movie is based on the real life event on the hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi, Pakistan, on 5 September 1986, where the flight's head purser Neerja Bhanot died trying to help save 359 of the 379 passengers and crew on board.
The producers wanted the titular role to be portrayed by Kangana Ranaut but the director chose Sonam Kapoor.
