The makers of Sonam Kapoor-starrer Neerja feel the film should be India’s entry to the Academy Awards for 2016.“I think this is the film that deserves to go…I think it will make India proud. So, I think Neerja has to be India’s entry to the Oscars [this year],” Fox Star Studio CEO Vijay Singh told reporters. Singh also revealed that they plan to release the film in different countries.The Ram Madhvani-directed film narrates the story of 23-year-old Neerja, a flight stewardess who saved hundreds of passengers who were hijacked on a Pan Am flight. She, posthumously, went on to become the youngest recipient of the country’s highest gallantry award, Ashok Chakra.
