Trailblazer's tale

After announcing a film on the surgical strike of 2016, Oddball Motion Pictures is set to produce a film on the first woman cadet of the Indian Army, Major Priya Jhingan.

The announcement was made by producer Nitin Upadhyaya on Major Priya’s 50th birthday.

Enrolled as Cadet No. 001, Priya Jhingan became the first woman to join the Indian Army along with 24 spirited women — making them the first batch of trailblazers for women in the armed forces.

“Since she was a girl, Priya dreamt to become an officer in the Indian Army and her journey of becoming one is a story worth retelling to aspiring young women and our nation,” says Nitin Upadhyaya, producer at Oddball Motion Pictures. 

Major Priya Jhingan was recently honoured by President Ram Nath Kovind, for being the first to break the glass ceiling.
