LISTEN: Neerja Bhanot's Last Flight Announcement Before She Was Killed

Ram Madhavani's Neerja, starring Sonam Kapoor, is all set to release this Friday, and its makers are leaving no stone unturned in their efforts to make sure the film strikes a chord with audiences.

FoxStar Hindi has released a recording of an in-flight announcement made by the real Neerja Bhanot on their YouTube channel.

Neerja Bhanot was a 23-year-old flight attendant who was killed in the 1986 hijacking of a Pan Am flight but saved the lives of 359 people on board. Posthumously, she became the youngest person to receive the Ashok Chakra, India's highest peacetime gallantry award.
