- The film manages to tarnish the image of the Air Force by producing religion
- The central government had filed an application in the Delhi High Court against the film
Karan Johar’s religious production has become more difficult in the ongoing case against ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Cargill Girl’ in the Delhi High Court. The film manages to entertain as well as inform. Now retired air lieutenant Gunjan Saxena said in an affidavit filed in the High Court that there was no discrimination on the basis of gender in the Air Force. This film is about his life. Jahnavi Kapoor is in the lead role.
‘Indian Air Force gives me a chance to serve’
In an affidavit filed before a single bench of Justice Rajiv Shaktidhar in the High Court, Gunjan wrote that he believed the Indian Air Force was a highly progressive institution. He will always be grateful that the Air Force gave him the opportunity to serve the country.
What else did Gunjan write in the affidavit?
According to Gunjan’s affidavit, the film is not a documentary, but is inspired by his life. He doesn’t claim that every incident in the film actually happened in his life. It is a dramatic presentation of his life. Gunjan believes the film inspires women to join the Air Force.
The High Court has suggested resolving the matter
During the video conferencing hearing, the High Court asked the lawyers of the Indian Air Force and Dharma Productions to sit together and try to resolve the issue related to the content shown in the film. In addition, the court refused to suspend his theatrical release. The next hearing will be on January 18, 2021.
The central government filed the petition
The Center had filed an application in the Delhi High Court against the film. It was alleged that the image had tarnished the image of the Indian Air Force. This shows that there is gender inequality in the military, which is not true. The image was published on the OTT platform on 12 August. There was a demand from the central government to stop releasing the movie in theaters.
