In an earlier interview to PTI, Sanjay mentioned Shanaya wants to become an actor but has decided to work as assistant director first to understand the nitty-gritties of filmmaking.

Back to Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, the film is based on the life and journey of the first Indian female air-force officer to go to war. Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is directed by Sharan Sharma and it has been produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.

Janhvi plays the eponymous character in the biopic, streaming on Netflix, August 12 onwards. The film features Pankaj Tripathi as Gunjan’s father and Angad Bedi as Gunjan’s brother. The film also has Manav Vij and Vineet Kumar Singh and Ayesha Raza Mishra in important roles.
