World TV Premiere of Gunjan Saxena on Zee Cinema
‘Plane ladka uddaye ya ladki, dono ko pilot hi bolte hai’, a line that was enough to motivate the entire nation. Ending this year with inspiration, motivation and non-stop positivity, Zee Cinema is all set to premiere the ever-encouraging story of a girl who dared to dream, with the World Television Premiere of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Directed by Sharan Sharma, the film stars Janhvi Kapoor, alongside Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi and premieres on the channel on 27th December at 8 pm.
The film is a heart-warming story about dreams, hope, the struggles and triumph of a remarkable woman, but most importantly, it’s about a beautiful father-daughter relationship – a relationship that prepared Gunjan for a flight in the turbulent ‘societal’ skies, aligning her wings; propelling her to never give up. Gunjan’s dream to soar in the sky was given wings by her father who stood like rock in every moment. With a heartwarming story, overwhelming emotions and soulful music that ties it all together, the plot of this family entertainer moves along the life of an ambitious Gunjan Saxena who eyes becoming a pilot after being drawn by the idea of a life in a cockpit.
Thrilled about the premiere, Janhvi Kapoor shared, “Through this film, I’ve understood myself better as an actor. It’s given me a different sense of confidence and maybe it’s because of the impact Gunjan ma’am’s story and resilience has had on me. I’ve learned to enjoy the process of growth. I’ve always wanted to do memorable work and touch people's lives because I know how much cinema has touched my life, and I hope I can do that with the World Television Premiere of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl on Zee Cinema.
