Speaking of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, the plot of the movie revolves around Gunjan Saxena, a Flight lieutenant, who was the first Indian Air Force woman officer who went to war. During the Kargil war in 1999, she flew a Cheetah aircraft into the combat zone and rescued several soldiers.
The film was slated to release on April 24. 2020 but due to the on-going pandemic the movie didn’t release. The release date of the film on Netflix is also not yet announced by KJo or any other person involved in the movie.
On the work front, Janhvi Kapoor will be also seen in Collin D’Cunha’s Dostana 2. The film also features Kartik Aaryan and newcomer Lakshya. The film is scheduled to release in December 2020 but might get delayed as a major chunk of the movie is yet to be shot.
