Mumbai: Actress Sonam Kapoor is "disheartened" that her true-life inspired drama "Neerja" will not release in Pakistan.  

The movie, which released in India today, has been banned by Pakistan for allegedly showing the country in bad light, a fact denied by the actress, who portrays slain flight attendant Neerja Bhanot in the film.

“Extremely disheartened that Neerja isn't releasing this Friday in Pakistan. She was awarded by them & I hope they will salute her again,” Sonam tweeted.

“She saved Pakistani lives, and I can guarantee that Pakistan hasn't been shown in a poor light, I really hope and pray Neerja releases.

When Neerja releases worldwide and people see how fair the film is, I'm hopeful that it will result in a solution to a release in Pakistan,” the actress said.  

Neerja, a flight attendant on board a Pan Am Mumbai-New York flight, who was shot dead by terrorists during the hijacking in 1986 while trying to save the lives of passengers.
