Dharma Production‘s film ‘Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl’ has already received lots of hate before the release as the netizens called it ‘pure nepotism’ and had decided to boycott it. After Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death, the topic of nepotism has taken a toll on the audience and they boycott any film which promotes nepotism.

Now, after the film was released on August 12 on Netflix, there were reports which stated that the film ‘Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl‘ has depicted the prestigious Indian Air Force in a bad light. After the release of the film, the IAF had written a letter addressing the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC), Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions, and the streaming platform releasing the film saying that it finds certain scenes in the trailer of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl objectionable.

The letter further added that Karan Johar had promised to represent IAF with authenticity and make all efforts to ensure that the film inspires the next generation of IAF officers. A plea was also filed by an NGO Justice For Rights Foundation and mentioned that some scenes and dialogues of the film depict misleading and incorrect facts about IAF.

Now, Delhi Hight Court has refused to stay on streaming of Jahnvi Kapoor’s film. The Delhi High Court has reacted to the plea and has asked the Centre as to why it didn’t request a stay before the release of the film. The court has also asked Dharma Productions, the producers of the movie, and the OTT platform showcasing the movie to respond to the Centre’s plea.

As reported, last week Delhi High Court also refused to order a deletion of particular scenes and dialogues from the movie.
