Not just the Indian Air Force, the film tells the story of a woman's life. Baba is an Indian Army officer, Dada also joined the Army following in his footsteps, the daughter of an Army family in Uttar Pradesh, Gunjan, so if my parents are stubborn, why can't I protect the country? Perhaps many did not think that Gunjan Saxena would one day make history out of this stubbornness. Girls don't join the army, girls don't go to war - this social taboo was broken by Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena. Because he has been baptized by his father in a single mantra since childhood, he is called a pilot.
The 2-minute 40-second trailer has a glimpse of the life story of Gunjan. The picture will be released on the OTT platform Netflix on August 12. Sharan Sharma, the director of the film, also wrote the script with Nikhil Mehrotra. The producer of the film is Karan Johar.
Gunjan was born into an army family in Uttar Pradesh. He has grown up with only one dream in his heart since childhood. The dream of matching wings in the sky. They are residents of Bab Badaun and the mother is the daughter of Etawah. Gunjan has been moving from one place to another since he was a child due to his father's job transfer. His father retired and started living in Lucknow. Then Gunjan is preparing for the job. He joined the Indian Air Force in 1996.
Gunjan currently lives in Varanasi. Her husband is an army officer. There is a daughter. That is why his parents are currently in Varanasi. Humming is an inspiration to girls. She was drafted into the Air Force at a time when there were few women in the army. Very soon his biography will come out in front of the whole world in the form of a film. That image will be published on the OTT platform.
