Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, which was first announced 26 December 2018, is directed by Sharan Sharma. Apart from Janhvi Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi, the film also stars Angad Bedi, Vineet Kumar, Manav Vij and Ayesha Raza. The film will release on Netflix on August 12, 2020, just three days before the Independence Day. 

The film’s teaser was released earlier. Following the launch of the teaser, former IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena had penned a note praising actress Janhvi Kapoor, saying that the teaser brought back memories.

"Very rarely have old memories flashed in front of me in such a sweet manner as was experienced after watching my montage with the voice over of Janhvi Kapoor. I guess it is the time for the culmination of an enriching journey which started with Sharan Sharma three years back. And what a journey it has been with Sharan. I have always admired his honesty, sincerity and sensitive compassion while portraying my life on big screen," Gunjan wrote on Instagram.

"Everybody at my age has a story to tell. Lucky few like me have Sharan and Janhvi to narrate my story. None of the life journeys is a walk in park and mine was no different. But at times a one-track mind on goal does help. During my tenure in IAF, whatever little I could achieve was with the help of men and women in blue uniforms," she added.
