The recently released Janhvi Kapoor’s movie Gunjan Saxena: ‘The Kargil Girl’ has come under a big problem. The Indian Air Force has written to the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification), Dharma Productions, and Netflix about the negative portrayal of IAF in the movie.

The letter sent to the CBFC read:
“Dharma Productions had agreed to represent the Indian Air Force (IAF) with authenticity and make all efforts to ensure that the film helps to inspire the next generation of IAF officers.”
In the recently released trailer, it was found that
“certain scenes and dialogues in the movie and its trailer, which was forwarded to this office for viewing, have been found to portray the IAF in an undue negative light.”
The story of the film is on Gunjan Saxena who was the first woman IAF officer to go on a war.
According to IAF, the movie should have inspired more people to join IAF but the film does not do so and instead, shows IAF in a negative light.
The film was directed by Sharan Sharma, produced by Dharma Productions. The movie stars Janhvi Kapoor alongside Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi.
