Janhvi Kapoor speaks about Gunjan Saxena’s inspiring journey

Gunjan and Janhvi come together for an interview with Mojo Story where they spoke about her incredible journey and Janhvi’s takeaway from the film.

Gunjan, while sharing about the toughest thing for a woman in uniform, said, “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 the 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 also the most challenging and exciting part as well (smiles).

While talking about her takeaway from the film and her learning from Gunjan, Janhvi said, “It all comes down to the effort and the hard work you put in towards your work. Her outlook was very simple, if you keep working hard, then one will get where one has to get.”

Janhvi felt that as Gunjan Saxena didn’t let the construct of society or the gender bias or anything else be an obstacle in her mind, or she even never victimised herself, but instead just kept through her work, and worked hard is something that inspires her the most. “I am so 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," she adds.

Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, directed by Sharan Sharma, also stars Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles.
