Elated at the award, Sonam Kapoor said that she believes in equal opportunity. “One thing I learnt while paying Neerja is that fear is something you don’t have to live with. You can embrace it, understand it and it can actually give you the strength and the courage to do what you seek to do. Follow your dreams and be the best version of yourself,” she added.
“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform,” Diane Mariechild. This quote resonates with what we believe in. Nothing can be more inspiring than listening to the success stories of our power women. This will sow the seeds of courage, resilience and empowerment to thousands of women.
