‘Gunjan Saxena’: When Janhvi Kapoor flew a chopper without proper training
Janhvi Kapoor is playing the first Indian woman airforce pilot in combat, Gunjan Saxena in the upcoming movie ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’. She left no stoned unturned to get into the skin of the character. She prepped for her role with utmost dedication and hard work. In an interview with Rajeev Masand, Janhvi revealed that she actually flew a chopper while shooting for the movie.
She said, “I got to do things that I never get to do in my real life. I got to fly a chopper. I flew it myself. I don’t know if I am allowed to say this. I had a pilot with me, Francesco, whose helicopter it was, and I ended up spending so many hours in the chopper that he was like, ‘You know what to do so I will sit here but I will hand over the controls to you’.”
The 22-year-old also said that ever since she started working for the film, she wants to become a pilot and fly a helicopter. Sharing the further experience of her, Janhvi said, “Before we shot all the aerial stuff, I spent a year shooting for the film and almost every day I was saying that I want to become a pilot. So, when I finally sat in the chopper, I got emotional, everyone on the set was teary-eyed. It was a very emotional journey.”
Produced by Karan Johar, ‘Gunjan Saxena’ is being directed by Sharan Sharma. It also has Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi along with Janhvi. It is slated to release in March this year.
