The much-awaited trailer of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is here and it is inspiring in every sense. Janhvi Kapoor stars as the titular Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena, who, along with Flight Lieutenant Srividya Rajan, were India's first women combat aviators to operate in the Kargil war zone on tiny IAF Cheetah helicopters. The trailer perfectly encapsulates the journey of Gunjan Saxena, who stood up against all odds and emerged victorious with her unparalleled courage and sheer determination.
The trailer showcases the story of all the obstacles that she had to face through the course of her journey - be it going against the will of her brother (played by Angad Bedi) serving in the army or facing discrimination from her peers, to the challenges of the battle field. The trailer also has glimpses of Pankaj Tripathi, who stars as Gunjan Saxena's supportive father, and Vineet Singh, an officer, who unknowingly brings out the best in Gunjan Saxena by challenging her on many levels. The film also stars Ayesha Raza and Manav Vij.
