Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, released on Netflix just a day back. While the film received a great reaction from celebs, it landed in some trouble with the Indian Air Force.
As per reports, the Indian Air Force wrote a letter to the CBFC to complain over their ‘undue negative portrayal’ in the Janhvi Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi starrer.
As per ANI, the IAF wrote a letter to the Central Board of Film Certification to raise their objection over certain scenes and dialogues in the film that may portray that it is not gender-neutral. Along with the letter, the Indian Air Force attached an annexure of scenes and dialogues that they felt portrayed it in a negative light. Owing to the same, Karan Johar is being called out by a certain section of Twitter. Several users took to social media to slam the filmmaker over ‘commercialising’ the IAF for the film.
The film revolves around the story of a former Indian Air Force female pilot who became the first one to go into combat during the Kargil War between India and Pakistan. The film is streaming on Netflix. It stars Janhvi Kapoor as Gunjan Saxena in the lead role.
