Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl trailer out: Janhvi Kapoor is flying high in Sharan Sharma film
Janhvi Kapoor’s Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl trailer is now out. In the film directed by Sharan Sharma, Janhvi plays the titular role of India’s first female Air Force officer to enter a warzone. Gunjan Saxena played a pivotal role during the Kargil War of 1999. The film is set for a digital release on August 12.
The 2-minute-41-second-long trailer begins with a voiceover that says “Air force join karna hai toh fauji bankar dikhao, varna, ghar jaakar, belan chalao,” and we then see glimpses of Janhvi, as Gunjan Saxena, running towards her destination. We are then taken to Gunjan Saxena’s childhood and Pankaj Tripathi, who plays Gunjan Saxena’s father, says “Plane ladka udaaye ya ladki, dono ko pilot hi bolte hain.” The rest of the trailer shows Janhvi, as Gunjan Saxena, trying to make a mark for herself in the man-dominated Indian Air Force. She is supported by her father in her journey when everybody else refuses to believe in her.
Akshay Kumar shared the trailer on Twitter and wrote, “Harr sapne ki udaan aise hi ho! Make way for the truly inspiring story of #GunjanSaxena – The Kargil Girl and all my best wishes to the team. To the real hero, Gunjan Saxena – thank you for inspiring many to chase their dreams with the same courage and soar higher!”
