We feel so blessed!"
Sonam also thanked Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal for making the Ram Madhvani film tax free in Delhi as well.
She tweeted, "Thank you @ArvindKejriwal sir for this!! #delhi is also tax free!! Team #Neerja is very grateful!
In a previous interview, director Ram Madhvani had said that he, along with team 'Neerja' wanted the film to be made tax-free so that stories like that of Neerja Bhanot's can reach a wider audience.
'Neerja,' which was released on 19 February, narrates the story of a Pan Am airhostess, who was shot in cold blood by hijackers while saving the passengers during the Pan Am holdup at Karachi airport on September 5 1986.
