A day back, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, released on Netflix. The film stars Janhvi Kapoor as Gunjan Saxena, who was the first female IAF pilot to go into combat during the Kargil War of 1999. While the film received a great reaction from celebs, it landed in some trouble with the Indian Air Force. Reportedly, the Indian Air Force wrote a letter to the CBFC to complain over their ‘undue negative portrayal’ in the Janhvi Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi starrer.

As per ANI, the IAF wrote a letter to the Central Board of Film Certification to raise their objection over certain scenes and dialogues in the film that may portray that it is not gender-neutral. Along with the letter, the Indian Air Force attached an annexure of scenes and dialogues that they felt portrayed it in a negative light. Owing to the same, Karan Johar is being called out by a certain section of Twitter. Several users took to social media to slam the filmmaker over ‘commercialising’ the IAF for the film.

A user wrote, “Expecting patriotism/patriotic aspects from Bollywood movies is useless. What we can do to these anti-Bharat concept movies is boycotting them and asking others to boycott these movies.Karan johar's Dharma productions official motto shall be "Adharma Always".” Further, a user slammed the filmmaker over IAF’s complaint and wrote, “We have respect for Gunjan Saxena ji , but not film her biopic , Karan Johar tries to make buisness on her name , here  IAF complains to film board there are some scenes in movie which disrespects image of IAF . See how shameless is Karan Johar. Boycott this movie .” 

Take a look at tweets against Karan Johar after IAF raised objections on Gunjan Saxena film:

Meanwhile, the film is also facing backlash on social media amid the nepotism row that sparked off post Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The trailer of the film came out recently and many liked it as well. The film revolves around the story of a former Indian Air Force female pilot who became the first one to go into combat during the Kargil War between India and Pakistan. The film is streaming on Netflix.

I am not a chamcha. I have brains and an education. Not like you all. Like a herd of illliterates running after a soft target. Akkal do paise ki bhi nahin hain. Producer paise lagata hain. Film main galati hain to director to bolo. And if Gunjan Saxena says it happened,ask the IAF to clarify with her as its her story.Aagaye Kangana ke paltu. Sheeeh

Anyone who thinks this movie is b bad or IAF is portrayed negatively.. is ridiculous. If this movie is true to Gunjan's story then it's p possible that back when these events took place maybe there was discrimination against females in the IAF. No one knows except Gunjan and if it's her story then the audience should accept it as her experience. Furthermore, this does NOT mean that the IAF still discriminates against females. This is a story of a pioneer and everyone should enjoy it.

Why KJo? Tell to the director. Also real Gunjan Saxena was on sets, she saw film. Tell her. Why are you targetting KJo? Now you are being bullies.

1) If the said individual faced discrimination in IAF, where is the documented proof that she filed anything or reported anything against it.Whenever women in the forces have faces such issues S.C has intervened and delivered justice. 2) If you are making a fictional movie why use IAF , Karan Johar could have used his airforce from the la la or unicorn land he lives in.
