The special screening of the film took place here at the Films Division Auditorium (FDA) on Wednesday.
Neerja is said to have caught the attention of Kejriwal because of its relevance to the national hero Neerja Bhanot who sacrificed her life while saving passengers on board a hijacked Pan Am flight 73, said a source.
The film, directed by Ram Madhvani, features Sonam in the lead role, and veteran actress Shabana Azmi plays her mother's role.
Produced by Fox Star Studios and Bling Unplugged, the film is slated to release on Friday.
