A trade source says, “After winning a National award for her performance in Neerja , Sonam has established herself as one of the most bankable female stars of her generation. Neerja was the most profitable film of 2017 , while her films in 2018 Sanju, PadMan and Veere Di Wedding went on to draw combined box office numbers that were on par some leading male stars. Her choice of films have been smart both on the commercial front as well as representing the kind of films young India wants to see on the big screen.”
