New Delhi: The Indian Air Force has written a letter to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) against the \u201cundue negative portrayal\u201d in the movie \u2018Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl\u2019, released on Netflix OTT on Wednesday. In a letter to the censor board, the IAF wrote, \u201cconcerns related to the movie\u2019s portrayal of gender bias as an institutional work culture at the IAF.\u201d The IAF protested the portrayal of the work culture in the Air Force shown in a \u201cnegative light\u201d and being discriminatory towards women officers. The IAF has also sent the letter to Karan Johar\u2019s Dharma Productions and Netflix India. The movie is a biopic of Flight lieutenant Gunjan Saxena, India\u2019s first female Air Force officer to fly in a combat zone during the 1999 Kargil war. An official statement read, \u201cThe Air Force has written a letter to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) objecting to certain scenes in the movie wherein it has been portrayed in an undue negative light.\u201d \u201cBefore the release of the film, the IAF had requested Dharma Productions to modify or delete the objectionable scenes. However, it did not take any action,\u201d the statement stated. The letter written to the CBFC mentions, \u201cIAF as a service has always ensured that the organization is gender neutral and has always provided an equal opportunity to both male and women personnel.\u201d As per reports, Dharma Productions earlier informed Air Force that it would portray the organization in positivity which would inspire the next generation. However, the letter says, \u201cIn the aim to glorify the screen character of 'Ex-Flt Lt Gunjan Saxena', Dharma Productions presented some situations that are misleading and portray an inappropriate work culture especially against women in the IAF.\u201d To prevent production houses distort the facts and show negativity in armed force-based movies, the defence ministry last month wrote to CBFC, Information technology ministry, and I&B ministry to advise production houses to obtain a "no objection" certificate from the ministry of defence before the telecast of any film, documentary, web series on the armed force theme.
