For Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl, Janhvi Kapoor has stepped into the shoes of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena.

Gunjan Saxena made history when she flew into a combat zone during the Kargil War and evacuated injured soldiers from Kargil in 1999. Despite facing fire, Gunjan and lieutenant Srividya Rajan, managed to bring the soldiers home. For her courage, Gunjan was bestowed with the Shaurya Chakra.

Sharing another poster of Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl, Karan wrote, “With unabashed courage & bravery, she made her domain in a man’s world. Gunjan Saxena – #TheKargilGirl, releasing on 13th March, 2020.”
