Mumbai: After 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', Sonam Kapoor has worked in another biopic 'Neerja'. The actress says she feels honoured to be a part of films based on the 'lives of Indian heroes'.

Sonam played the love interest of Farhan Akhtar in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s 2013 film 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', which is inspired by the real life story of Indian athlete Milkha Singh.

And now she is essaying the titular role in 'Neerja', a biopic on Neerja Bhanot, a valiant Indian flight attendant who lost her own life but saved the lives of passengers during a hijacking.

“It is an honour to be a part of both these biopics which are based on the lives of Indian heroes. Ironically, both 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' and 'Neerja' are based on personalities from Chandigarh," Sonam said in a statement.

The Ram Madhvani-directorial features Sonam as Neerja, a Pan Am chief purser who was gunned down by terrorists when Flight 73 was hijacked in Karachi in 1986. She saved a number of lives but lost her own.

The film is set to release on February 19.
