First Look: Janhvi Gives Wings to Her Dream as the Kargil Girl
Gunjan Saxena had a huge contribution in the Kargil War in 1999
After earning praise for her performance in Dhadak, Janhvi Kapoor is busy preparing for her upcoming film, a biopic on Indian Air Force pilot Gunjan Saxena. Now, Dharma has released some posters of the film. In the first one, we can see Janhvi Kapoor holding a paper plane and smiling.
The second poster shows Pankaj Tripathi playing Janhvi’s father. The caption reads, “Meri beti ki udaan koi nahin rok sakta (Nobody can stop my daughter from chasing her dreams).”
Last but not the least is the one wherein we see Janhvi dressed in the pilot’s uniform. “She created her own turf in a man’s world with unparalleled bravery & courage”, Dharma tweeted.
Titled Gunjan Saxena - The Kargil Girl, the film will celebrate the achievements of this brave pilot. Saxena had a huge contribution in the Kargil War in 1999. She was the first lady IAF officer who flew into the war zone. Later, she was honoured with the Shaurya Chakra, for her valour and self-sacrifice while not engaged in direct action with the enemy.
Janhvi has reportedly put on some weight to fit into the character. The film also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Angad Bedi and Vineet Kumar.
Directed by Sharan Sharma, Gunjan Saxena is slated to hit the theatres on 13 March, 2020.
