After Neerja in 2016, the super-hit biopic on airhostess Neerja Bhanot, another air hostess, Amrita Ahluwalia, will now have her life filmed for a commercial film.

In 1991, Air India’s airhostess Amrita Ahluwalia, who hails from Haryana, saved an 11-year-old girl from the clutches of her 60-year-old Saudi husband. The Hyderabad police claimed to have rescued 12 minor girls by arresting 20 people, including eight Arab sheikhs at that time.

The fearless and courageous Amrita settled in Hyderabad in connection with this case and is working for the uplifting of women and children through her NGO. Abhishek Dudhaiya, who directed Bhuj:The Pride of India starring Ajay Devgn, also a biopic on Indian Air Force Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik, will be the producer-director. His production house has taken the rights to make a film on her life.

“Currently, the work on the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film are being written, after which the cast will be selected,” says the filmmaker.
