Angad Bedi and Janhvi Kapoor are all set to bring the real-life story of Gunjan Saxena to the big screen with Kargil Girl. Gunjan was the first woman combat aviator who entered the war zone in the 1999 Kargil War.
The movie’s first schedule was shot in Lucknow. Angad and Jahnvi are all set to head to Georgia to shoot their next schedule. This schedule is said to be an intense and action-packed one which will be shot in the high altitude regions of Georgia. It will be shot in the northeastern part of the country in a town called Kazbegi.
The town is a mountainous area set over 5700 feet above sea level. Angad has hired a coach and has been training for the past few weeks by running on inclined roads in Mumbai to help him. Said a source:
“Both Janhvi and Angad will leave in end of July to Georgia. They will shoot first in the main capital before heading to Kazbegi which is very tough terrains area pretty high above the sea level. The scenes which they are meant to shoot need a certain level of fitness from both their parts and Angad has this hired Brinston to help him be coached and be able to be in a fit shape where he can run on inclined slopes and tough terrains.”
Kargil Girl is produced by Karan Johar and Bhushan Kumar. The release date is yet to be revealed.
