She believes that the bond is uncanny with Maheshwar, and gets gooseflesh talking about it.
Meanwhile, Sonam cannot stop gushing about the special connection she seems to have with a small town in Madhya Pradesh, where she recently finished shooting the first schedule of her next movie, Padman.
“We just returned from Maheshwar,” reveals Sonam. “I must confess, this place definitely has some celestial connection with my film Neerja and me. I was really surprised at receiving the news of being bestowed the National Award while I was in Maheshwar, as it was here where the whole team of Neerja had finished the climax scene.”
She believes that the bond is uncanny with Maheshwar, and gets gooseflesh talking about it. “We had to travel five or six hours to get to Maheshwar by road to shoot for Padman, and since they were so uneven, I just went and slept off. When I woke up, I noticed innumerable missed calls, and immediately called my mom back.
She informed me about Neerja and me receiving the National Award. Initially, I didn’t understand what she was saying, but when she repeated it, I was shocked and happy. I couldn’t believe I was staying in the same room at that time, as I did while shooting for Neerja. I called up Shabana aunty (Azmi), who was very happy too. But when I told her that I was staying in the same room, she got gooseflesh too.”
