Janhvi Kapoor made her impressive debut in Bollywood with Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak opposite Ishaan Khatter. Her earnest performance won the newcomer many hearts and fans. Then came the announcement that Janhvi will be starring in Karan Johar’s directorial Takht which is jam-packed with an interesting ensemble featuring Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. While there is still time for Takht to go on floors and the film only releases in 2020, Janhvi is already focusing on another project.
The actress will be seen playing the role of Gunjan Saxena in her biopic. Gunjan Saxena was the first female IAF pilot who flew into a combat zone during the Kargil War in 1999. Because of her bravery, she was honoured with the Shaurya Chakra, an Indian military decoration. A few weeks ago, we got the first glimpse of Janhvi as Gunjan dressed in her uniform and having a striking resemblance to the IAF pilot. But, Janhvi is taking things a step further to get into the skin of her character.
