Gunjan Saxena the former Air Force pilot is impressed with Pankaj Tripathi’s performance as her father in her upcoming biopic, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.
Gunjan wrote in her post, sharing a video of Pankaj speaking about his role in the film.“Father-daughter duo. Respect @pankajtripathi .. You nailed it… Kudos…. The most simplistically portrayed father-daughter bonding,”
In the video, Pankaj told “the role was very personal for me and that Gunjan for me, wasn’t Janhvi but like my own daughter. “Just like Anup Saxena in the film, I am the same kind of father in real life. I am always after my daughter, I keep telling her to go play lawn tennis.”
