After Karan Johar's Dhadak, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl will be the second feature film for Janhvi Kapoor. As the actress is excited to showcase the journey of Gunjan Saxena in this biopic, there is a certain section who are slamming the film and the actress. After Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely demise, netizens started pouring in hatred and venom-filled comments on the star kids and Bollywood bigwigs. Having said that, Gunjan Saxena's biopic was not treated any differently. Seeing so much hatred, Janhvi said that she 'haven’t made her peace with it.' That's not it, the actress also said that she is confident about the film and sees no reason why they have to be apologetic about it.
While speaking to Hindustan Times, she was quoted saying, “The sentiment has been fuelled and amplified in the last month. I hope it’s not something that I have to deal with every release.” She further said that it's time to exercise 'a little bit of sensitivity' “I know I’m confident of what I’ve done, and I’m confident of the film and the story… I don’t think there’s any reason for us to be apologetic for what we’ve done,” she said to the portal.
She also admitted by saying, “I’ve kind of fast-tracked into this system already. I’ve skipped many steps that many people have had to fight for. I’ve gotten chances that many people wouldn’t have gotten easily. I’m here already through a much easier route than most people have had. So from now if the journey is a little bit of an uphill climb and it’s a little bit harder for people to accept me then I’ll accept it. If I’ve skipped a certain portion of the journey that people are subjected to then this is my journey from here on, and I’ll embrace it.”
Pankaj Tripathi who is also a part of the film said, "Right now, it is as if the book is being judged by its cover." Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl starring Janhvi Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi will be releasing on August 12 on Netflix.
