Janhvi Kapoor has reportedly finished shooting for her role as Indian Air Force officer Gunjan Saxena in her much-awaited biopic film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. The actor took to Instagram and shared a series of photos as memories of the shoot of the Sharan Sharma directorial.

She captioned the post with an emotionally charged message which read," Spent two days trying to think of a caption that’ll do justice to what this experience has meant to me but nothing sums it up. It’s a film wrap and I feel blessed to have been on this special journey, and through it to find my best friend (director Sharan Sharma) - like you say it’s all about the process; and I don’t think there will ever be one as pure, honest, adventurous and memorable as this one. Can’t wait for you guys to see it ❤️"
