The trailer of Gunjan Saxena starts with bomb blasts and the battle scenes in a war. The video then shows the young Gunjan saying to his brother that she wants to become a pilot. Then comes Pankaj Tripathi, who plays the role of Gunjan’s father, who consoles her and assists her in training. Gunjan then goes on to become a pilot, but she has to face difficulties as she is only the woman officer commissioned. The trailer then ends with Gunjan entering the battlefield upon the instruction of her officer.
