The Indian Air Force has written a letter to the Censor Board opposing the negative portrayal of IAF in the movie.
Gunjan Saxena, the first Indian female pilot on combat whose biopic is being screened on Netflix from wednesday has been now asked to stop the screening and apologise to the Indian Air Force ( IAF ) and National Commission of women ( NCW ) as they have portrayed IAF in a wrong way, which is not true. The Netflix feature film being released on Wednesday has been receiving appreciations on the movie and the performance of Jhanvi kapoor who has played the lead role as “Gunjan Saxena :
the Kargil girl”.
The Indian Air Force has written a letter to the Censor Board opposing the negative portrayal of IAF in the movie. The letter mentioned “concerns related to the movie’s portrayal of gender bias as an institutional work culture” at the IAF.
Saxena, the first woman combat pilot who became a part of 1999 Kargil war said in a statement that “Whenever you are in any kind of environment, there are different kinds of individuals that make up that environment so when there is a major change happening, some of these individuals are ready to accept this change more readily than the others and some take more time to adjust to this change”.
“What is really of importance here is – even though it took time for some individuals to change, those individuals did change, it did happen and in a very positive and right direction.”
