Have a look at the video here:
Gunjan Saxena is all set to skip a theatrical release owing to the coronavirus pandemic (that seems to have no end on a global scale) and will now see a direct OTT release on Netflix. In a statement, speaking about the flick, the film’s producer Karan Johar said,
“Gunjan Saxena is a defining film based on a true story about a woman who showed unparalleled courage, and inspiration to many in the coming years. We are excited to partner with Netflix and share this fearless story about following your heart and your dreams with millions around the world.”
For the unaware, Gunjan Saxena is based on the life of Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena, who along with Flight Lieutenant Srividya Rajan, made history when she became the 1st Indian woman in combat during the Kargil war. The story gets special public attention because it is from a time long before women fighter pilots were commissioned into the Indian Air Force.
