Who Is Gunjan Saxena, Played By Janhvi Kapoor In Her Next Film?

Janhvi Kapoor will be soon seen in a film titled Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Makers unveiled a look from the film and announced that the film will be released on Netflix. No release date has been announced yet. But the question is, who is Gunjan Saxena whose biopic Janhvi Kapoor will be playing in this film! Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena — who along with Flight Lieutenant Srividya Rajan — made history when she became the first Indian woman in combat during the Kargil war. The two pilots flew the Cheetah helicopters for casualty evacuation for which they often flew very close to Pakistani positions. This was long before women fighter pilots were commissioned into the Indian Air Force. The film was initially scheduled for theatrical release, but due to coronavirus pandemic, the makers are releasing it on Netflix. Karan Johar, producer of this film said, “Gunjan Saxena is a defining film based on a true story about a woman who showed unparalleled courage, and inspiration to many in the coming years. We are excited to partner with Netflix and share this fearless story about following your heart and your dreams with millions around the world.”
