‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’ trailer: Janhvi Kapoor shows grit, gumption and guts as the first female air force pilot in combat
Janhvi Kapoor’s Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The biopic based on the life of the first Indian female airforce pilot Gunjan Saxena who went into combat during the Kargil war has generated the right buzz right from its inception. Now, the trailer of the film has dropped and we must say the hype was justified.
Janhvi as Gunjan shows guts, grit and gumption fighting stereotypes and trying to fulfill her dreams of becoming a pilot. The trailer shows the patriarchal and orthodox mindset of the defence services and how the protagonist managed to break all of them through sheer determination. Pankaj Tripathi as the supportive father steals the show.
Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl also stars Angad Bedi, Viineet Kumar and Manav Vij. It is directed by Sharan Sharma who is making his directorial debut with it. Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is produced by Karan Johar under his production banner Dharma Productions.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, the film is gearing up for a direct-to-web release. It will premiere on Netflix on August 12, 2020.
