OTT release appears to be a growing trend due to the ongoing pandemic situation and consequent lockdown. Bollywood projects that were all set to release in the theatres these months are  now set to premiere on OTT platforms. Janhvi Kapoor starrer Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl will also ditch the traditional theatrical release and will stream directly on Netflix. The actor took to her social media on Tuesday morning to make the announcement. The release date of the film hasn’t been revealed yet.

A teaser of the film was also released, which was a video montage of photos of the real Gunjan Saxena with a voice-over by Janhvi Kapoor, who appears in the video as well. Karan Johar took to his social media to share the video and wrote, “Her inspirational journey made history. This is her story. Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, coming soon on Netflix.”

The story of Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl is based on the first female Indian Air Force pilot, who went to combat in the Kargil War along with her partner Srividya Rajan. According to reports, the focal point of the film is about how Gunjan’s perseverance helped her conquer the obstacles she faced. This is particularly because being a female pilot was not seen as a job for women back then. Nonetheless, she proved them wrong.

Helmed by Sharan Sharma, the film is being co-produced by Karan Johar and Hiroo Johar. The film also features a stellar cast namely Pankaj Tripathi, Angad Bedi, Neena Gupta and Vijay Verma among others.
