The trailer of Janhvi Kapoor's upcoming film, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl was released recently. The film which is now skipping a theatrical release amid the coronavirus times is all set to for a Netflix premiere. In the light of Sushant Singh Rajput's death, the discussion on 'insider vs outsider' treatment in Bollywood and nepotism has become a huge talking point. While Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt have received immense flak online in relation to the same, the lastest target of internet trolls was the trailer of Gunjan Saxena.

Recently, reacting to the flak that the freshly released trailer received, Angad Bedi whilst speaking to Midday, called it 'unfair'. He said, "It's my film, too." Further adding onto the same, he said, "Everyone has a right to their opinion, but people are spitting fire against one another. The flak [that the film is receiving] is unfair.
