Janhvi Kapoor, who made her silver screen debut with Dharma Productions’ Dhadak in 2018, will be next seen in Kargil Girl, which again is a Dharma Productions’ film, produced by Karan Johar. Kargil Girl is a biopic on IAF officer Gunjan Saxena, the first woman combat aviator who entered the war zone during the 1999 Kargil War and saved the lives of many injured Indian soldiers.
Besides Janhvi Kapoor, the biopic also features Angad Bedi, Pankaj Tripathi and Rajat Barmecha in important roles. The first schedule of the much-awaited movie was shot in Lucknow, the state capital of Uttar Pradesh, and now Janhvi and Angad are headed to Georgia to shoot the next schedule.
If reports are to be believed, the second schedule of the film is going to be more intense and action-packed. The team is planning to shoot in high altitude regions of Georgia in the northeastern part of the country in a town called Kazbegi.
Confirming the development, a source in the know informs, “Both Janhvi and Angad will leave at the end of July to Georgia. They will shoot first in the main capital before heading to Kazbegi which is very tough terrains area pretty high above the sea level. The scenes which they are meant to shoot need a certain level of fitness from both their parts and Angad has this hired Brinston to help him be coached and be able to be in a fit shape where he can run on inclined slopes and tough terrains.”
Directed by Sharan Sharma and produced by Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios, Kargil Girl is expected to roll into theatres in the first half of 2020.
