Delhi High Court has refused to ban the broadcast of Netflix's 'Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl'. The High Court said that this film is not doing any harm to the image of the Indian Air Force, because it showed that gender discrimination is done in force. Explain that the Center had said in its petition that this film is presenting the wrong image of the Indian Air Force. However, the court has refused to believe so.

Delhi Court rejects petition related to film Ban:

Justice Rajiv Shakdhar questioned the Center as to why he did not approach the court before the film's release on the Over the Top (OTT) platform. He said that no order can be passed now, as the movie has been released.

There is no discrimination portrayed in film:

This petition said that the court should order the filmmakers to remove the objectionable dialogues and scenes used in the film, as it may tarnish the image of the Indian Air Force. Apart from this, the petition also said that some male tenants in the film are shown to have a poor attitude against women, which is beyond the truth. Because there is no gender discrimination in the Indian Air Force.
