The Karan Johar’s film Gunjan Saxena : The Kargil Girl in which Jahnavi Kapoor played the lead role has shown Indian Airforce Force (IAF) work culture in a wrong way. The film projected that Air force officer Gunjan was discriminated by the male counterparts and officials. From running to her room for changing her uniform to her salute there are many scenes where IAF work environment was projected as gender biased, which is not true and is unacceptable. Jahnavi has used Army salute instead of Air force salute. When showing an organisation like Indian Air Force proper care needs to be taken for every detail. But in the movie the makers had completely neglected facts and added elements for the commercial success of the film which were untrue.
IAF treats both men and women equally and there was no discrimination on any women pilot till date. From training to flying no one is ill treated. The selection process is held to test Analytical skills and Psychological thought process including the adaptability of individual to extreme pressure situations. A candidate is shortlisted only after many rounds of assessments. From where did the thought of gender bias came from, is it correct to badly project an organisation IAF just for adding that x-factor to the film.
Indian Air Force has announced that the film has projected the working culture of IAF in bad light. Even Gunjan Saxena has stated that she never faced any sort of gender bias, In fact she received support from seniors and fellow pilots in IAF. But facts were changed and were even undisclosed. Seems like director of the film Sharan Sharma and producer Karan Johar had not done the proper background work of the film, whatever the reasons may be. It is necessary to show the actual facts and delete those negative scenes from the film.
