Janhvi Kapoor's look as first woman IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena in upcoming biopic leaked

Janhvi Kapoor's look as first woman Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Gunjan Saxena from the forthcoming untitled film, backed by Dharma Productions, has surfaced on the internet. The actress was photographed in blue IAF overalls, minimal make up with her hair in a bun.

It was previously reported that the project will go on floors in 2019 and the director was yet to be finalised.

Saxena, along with her colleague Srividya Rajan, were part of the first female batch of 25 Indian Air Force trainee pilots in 1994. During the 1999 war, Flight Lieutenant Saxena and Flight Lieutenant Srividya Rajan were called on duty to Kargil. Their responsibilities included carrying out medical evacuations, dropping supplies and identifying Pakistani positions on the war zone. They flew small Cheetah helicopters and were completely defenceless and unarmed while traversing enemy territories. Her contribution during the war earned her a Shaurya Vir, a gallantry honour for valour, courageous action or self-sacrifice, while not engaged in direct enemy combat. She was the first woman to have received the honour from the army.

Janhvi made her debut opposite Ishaan Khatter in Dhadak. She is also a part of Karan Johar's epic historical drama Takht, also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor.
