The lockdown imposed due to the on-going Coronavirus pandemic has presuded some filmmakers to release their films on the OTT platform. After Gulabo Sitabo, another movie ready for getting streamed online is Janhvi Kapoor’s Gunjan Saxena- The Kargil Girl, where the actress plays the eponymous character.
Janhvi took her Instagram account to share the new poster of the film announcing the release on Netflix soon. The poster looks promising and the actress looks fierce. Maheep Kapoor was the first to comment with hearts and clapping hands emojis after Janhvi shared the look. Maheep wrote- “can’t wait,” (sic) followed by a smiling emoji. Manish Malhotra also commented with five hearts and an equal number of thumbs up.
Now have a look at the poster right here:
This movie chronicles the life of a very inspiring figure, Karan Johar, who has been producing the movie, shared a video on his Twitter account showcasing the lovely moments of Gunjan Saxena with her family and also how she dreamt of serving for the nation. This has been described as a small dream. As the video is about to end, we see some glimpses from the film.
