The film is shown from the point of view of the flight's head purser Neerja Bhanot Sonam Kapoor, who thwarted the hijack attempt by alerting the pilots, thus grounding the plane. She was killed by the hijackers while helping to save 359 of the 379 passengers and crew on board. The government posthumously awarded her the Ashoka Chakra; she was the youngest person to receive it.
