August 01 : The makers of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl dropped the trailer of the film today after a long wait. Starring Janhvi Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi, the film is slated to release on August 12, 2020, on Netflix. The trailer will certainly hold your attention.

While Janhvi essays the first female Indian Air Force pilot in combat during the Kargil War between India and Pakistan, Pankaj plays Janhvi’s father, and Angad portrays her brother’s role, who is in the army.


The interesting trailer takes us through an inspiring journey of Gunjan Saxena, who dreams of being a pilot in the forces. While everyone is against her wish, her father supports her irrespective of what her mother, brother, and society think. The trailer gives a glimpse of some endearing moments between Janhvi and Pankaj. “Whether a woman or a man flies the plane, they are both called pilots,” Pankaj tells Janhvi in the trailer, which is no doubt a strong moment. The trailer also shows how Gunjan faces discrimination in the Air Force because of her gender. But her career took off when she was sent to the 1999 Kargil War.

Directed and co-written by Sharan Sharma, the film is based on the life of Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena, who made history when she became the first Indian woman in combat during the Kargil War. Gunjan Saxena and Flight Lieutenant Srividya Rajan flew the Cheetah helicopters for casualty evacuation, when they flew very close to Pakistani positions as well.
