Aware of my privileges, often felt guilty about it: Janhvi Kapoor

Aware of my privileges, often felt guilty about it: Janhvi KapoorJanhvi Kapoor has opened up on the biggest lesson she has learnt while portraying the character of Gunjan Saxena, the first female Indian Air Force pilot in warzone, in an upcoming biopic.

Since “Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl” is based on the life of the Air Force pilot, Janhvi spent a substantial time with her.

I feel blessed to have been on this special journey: Janhvi

“It all comes down to the effort and the hard work you put into your work. Her (Gunjan Saxena’s) outlook is very simple. If one keeps working hard, then one will get where one has to get. I am aware of my privilege. I often felt guilty about it. But the best I can do is to earn my place by working even harder,” Janhvi, daughter of the late superstar Sridevi, said.

 

She noted how Saxena didn’t let society’s gender bias act as an obstacle, and never victimised herself. Instead just worked hard, which is something that inspires the most.

Gunjan calls herself lucky as Sharan and Janhvi are narrating her story.

In a media interaction she attended with Janhvi, Saxena spoke of the toughest things a woman in uniform faces. “Other than infrastructure barriers like no separate washrooms or changing rooms, which were slowing taken care of, the toughest thing was breaking the mental barrier people had, making them accept you as a professional. Being accepted as an officer and not being looked at as a woman officer. I think that was the most challenging and also exciting part,” Saxena said.

The film directed by Sharan Sharma also features Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi, and is set for a Netflix release on August 12.
