Janhvi Kapoor-starrer Gunjan Saxena - The Kargil Girl will premiere directly on Netflix. Directed by Sharan Sharma, the film is a biopic of Indian Air Force pilot Gunjan Saxena, who became one of the first female air combatants of India to enter a war zone during the 1999 Kargil War. 

On Tuesday, an announcement teaser of the film was launched, featuring a montage of Gunjan’s pictures with the voice-over of Janhvi. Soon after, the real Kargil Girl took to social media to share her feelings about the biopic. 

“Very rarely have old memories flashed in front of me in such a sweet manner as was experienced after watching my montage with voice over of Janhvi,” Gunjan Saxena wrote. “I guess it is the time for culmination of an enriching journey which started with Sharan Sharma three years back.”

Gunjan praised the filmmaker for his ‘honesty, sincerity and a sensitive compassion’ in portraying her journey. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Very rarely have old memories flashed in front of me in such a sweet manner as was experienced after watching my montage with voice over of @janhvikapoor. I guess it is the time for culmination of an enriching journey which started with @sharansharma three years back. And what a journey it has been with Sharan. I have always admired his honesty, sincerity and a sensitive compassion while portraying my life on big screen. Everybody at my age has a story to tell. Lucky few like me have Sharan and Janhvi to narrate my story. None of life journeys are a walk in park and mine was no different. But at times a one track mind on goal does help. During my tenure in IAF, whatever little I could achieve was with the help of men and women in blue uniform. I sincerely hope everyone will enjoy the movie not because it is my story but more so because of the honest work of Sharan and his team .. @sharansharma @janhvikapoor @dharmamovies @karanjohar #GunjanSaxenaOnNetflix
