- Know who is Gunjan Saxena:
Gunjan Saxena has been a flight lieutenant in the Indian Air Force. She is now retired. She is known as Kargil Girl. Shaurya Award is given to Gunjan for her valor, courage and patriotism. Gunjan is the woman who proved that women can not only become pilots but can get to accept the superiority of one’s ability and power.
During the Kargil war Gunjan Saxena flew a cheetah helicopter fearlessly into the war zone. During this time, she lifted from the high hills of Dras and Batalik and brought her back to a safe place. Pakistani soldiers were constantly attacking with rocket launchers and bullets. The missile was also fired on Gunjan’s aircraft but the target missed and Gunjan narrowly survived. With no weapon, Gunjan confronted the Pakistani soldiers and rescued many soldiers from there. Please tell that when Gunjan was graduating from Hansraj College, he joined Safdarganj Flying Club of Delhi. At that time both her father and brother are in the Indian Army.
During this time she came to know that for the first time women pilots required in the IAF. She then passed the SSB exam and joined the Indian Air Force as a pilot. At that time, the security forces dominated by male officers. Women officers in the Indian Air Force do not give the opportunity to fly equal to men. Of course, women officers were not allowed to fly fighter jets at that time, but the women of their batch had made history by flying the aircraft for the first time in the Indian Air Force. Although there was a reservation for women pilots in the Indian Air Force at that time.
But then it was not clear how they would face mental and physical stress and wars to fly? These women wanted a chance to prove their ability which they got during the Kargil war in 1999. During the war, when the Indian Army needed a pilot, Gunjan and Sri Vidya sent to the war zone. She also flew several times very close to the Line of Control to complete his mission so that the position of Pakistani soldiers could be ascertained.
Fans like very much first look of the film. Apart from this film, Janhvi Kapoor is playing the lead role in the horror-comedy film Roohi Afza with actor Rajkummar Rao.
