The Kargil Girl: Story Of India's First Woman Combat Aviator | Left, Right & Centre

Share the News

In 1999, as the Kargil war was winding down, we had the opportunity to fly with Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena, India’s first woman combat aviator. Flight Lieutenant Saxena flew Cheetah helicopters during the war and participated in daring missions observing the damage caused by India’s artillery fire. Her Cheetah helicopter was vulnerable and completely defenceless. The story that we put together in 1999 inspired the film Kargil Girl, which has been produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. We are delighted at being a small part of the process that made Flight Lieutenant Saxena and her exploits be known to the rest of India and are thrilled that this is now a film being released on Netflix. This is the story of Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena (retd).
