Alia Bhat is replaced by Sonam Kapoor due to height

Neerja starring Sonam Kappor in the lead is directed by Ram Madhvani. It is now heard that Alia Bhatt has been considered for the role first but could not be roped in due to her height. 

Fox Star Studios were of the opinion that Alia would fit into the character of Neerja Bhanot but co-producer Atul Kasbekar said that Sonam would look perfect in the role as she is taller than Alia.

 "Buzz is Kasbekar and his team believed that Sonam who is taller than Alia would suit the part better. Sonam is at least 5 inches taller than Alia," the report said. 

"Neerja" showcased the life of Neerja Bhanot who lost her life saving passengers on the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi in 1986.

The 23-year-old flight attendant was honoured with India's highest bravery award -- the Ashok Chakra -- and was also honoured by the USA and Pakistan government.
