After making a grand debut in Bollywood with ‘Dhadak’ last year, Janhvi Kapoor has now started shooting for Gunjan Saxena’s biopic ‘Kargil Girl’. Last month, we got a glimpse of Janhvi in the get up of a Flight Lieutenant as she was dressed in a combat aviator’s uniform. And now, it is being reported that Angad Bedi is on-board the project as her brother Anshuman Saxena.

According to a report published in Mumbai Mirror, while Angad Bedi is playing an army officer, like Gunjan’s real-life brother Anshuman, Pankaj Tripathi is playing their father. The tabloid also quoted a source as saying, “Janhvi and Angad were spotted shooting on the streets of Nirala Nagar over the weekend, where they danced on the hit Ram Lakhan song, ‘One Two Ka Four’. They recreated Anil’s iconic steps during the late-night shoot.”

The ongoing schedule of ‘Kargil Girl’ will wrap up on March 2, after which the team returns to Mumbai. However, they will be back to shoot for the second schedule in Lucknow in April.

Talking about Gunjan Saxena’s biopic ‘Kargil Girl’, the film is about India’s first female combat aviator. During the Kargil war in 1999, Gunjan had evacuated injured soldiers along with her colleague Srividya Rajan. She is the first woman to have received the Shaurya Vir award.

Apart from this biopic, Janhvi will also be seen in Karan Johar‘s ‘Takht’. The film also stars Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar in pivotal roles.
