Saturday, August 15, 2020 • Tamil Comments

The chairperson of NCW (National Commission for Women) Chief, Rekha Sharma condemned the fallacious portrayal of gender discrimination in the film ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’. She also demanded the creators to discontinue the screening of the film over the OTT.

‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’ features Jhanvi Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi, and Angad Bedi in the lead roles. Due to the pandemic, the film was released on Netflix on the 12th of August,2020. Despite receiving positive responses for the amazing act by Jhanvi, the film has now been reprimanded for the facade showing the gender bias prevailing over the armed forces.

Regarding this, Rekha Sharma took it to twitter and updated a tweet saying, “The real #GunjanSaxena must come out and clarify whether the gender discrimination shown in the movie is for real? Being from an Army background I can never imagine defence officers behaving like goons. Officer or not, women are always getting their due respect in forces.”

She had also uploaded a screenshot of a news report that depicts the denial of Kargil war veteran, for the existence of gender discrimination in the defense. She posted the update with a message asking the filmmakers to apologize and discontinue the screening if it is true.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) wrote to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) grumbling against the ‘undue negative portrayal’ in Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.

ANI also produced a report saying, “In the aim to glorify the screen character of ‘Ex-Fit Lt Gunjan Saxena’, M/s Dharma Productions presented some situations that are misleading and portray an inappropriate work culture especially against women in the IAF.”
