Sonam Kapoor is flying high after winning the best actress award at the Indian Film Festival Melbourne (IFFM), for her effortless portrayal of a fearless air hostess in Neerja.
The movie, which was a biopic on Neerja Bhanot released earlier this year, and has been gaining Sonam accolades and fans alike for her performance.
In her thanksgiving speech, the actress shared her strong views on gender issues and woman empowerment. Now, Sonam has also been invited for a special lunch with the governor of Victoria in Australia, Linda Dessau, at the government house. Linda also happens to be the first woman to hold this office.
The actress had flown to Australia recently, especially for IFFM, an annual awards gala that celebrates Indian cinema and honours performers. Neerja was screened at the massive gathering, where Sonam was called as a special guest. As the guest of honour, Sonam also judged a dance competition at the festival.
