As soon as the makers released the first look poster of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl starring Janhvi Kapoor in the lead role, netizens took to Twitter to share their opinions on the same. In the film, we will see Janhvi getting into the shoes of India's first Air Force woman officer who went to war, Gunjan Saxena. For the curious Georges, she also happens to be the first female Shaurya Chakra beneficiary war veteran. The film also casts Pankaj Tripathi, Vineet Kumar Singh, Manav Vij and Angad Bedi in the key roles. While Pankaj Tripathi will play the role of her father, we will see Angad as Janhvi's on-screen brother.
