Janhvi Kapoor is bringing to fore the real-life story of India’s first female air force pilot Gunjan Saxena who went into combat in Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. The film is up for release on Netflix tomorrow, on August 12, 2020. Ahead of the release of her inspiring story, Gunjan took to her Instagram account to share a note of gratitude to the cast and crew of the film who did justice to her mammoth achievement.

In a heartfelt note, Gunjan wrote, “More than three years back, I embarked on a journey into a totally new and unknown area for me. One in which "my story" had to be told to the world on a "screen". I started this journey with Sharan, not very sure how it would be possible, or if it was possible. My apprehensions were settled within my first few meetings with Sharan. His sensitivity, honesty and perceptiveness helped me be at ease. Then I met Janhvi.... I could connect with her simplicity and sincerity almost instantly. As the process of making the film started l met Nikhil, Manush, Anoushka, Aditya. Soon we had a closely knit group, working in perfect sync, to put together a film which had focus, human emotions and reality....overall a film to which people could connect.”
