Saavdhaan! Vishraam! For fourteen long years, Lt Col Ankita Srivastava’s tough feet happily switched themselves between these two poses in the Indian Army.
After serving her term, she hung her Army boots for good. But her Olive Green mind demanded some action! She was trained for hardships and challenges, and here she was – out of the Army and unable to get back to the usual civilian life so suddenly.
She could have run marathons or gone for cycling expeditions, but she found all that too boring. Dance was exciting, but it needed feminine grace. And she had spent fourteen years proving to the nation that she was not a woman, but a soldier! She had to change that!
As she embarks on her journey to exchange toughness with softness at a national beauty pageant, she successfully trains her feet to switch from drill boots to stilettos. But there’s a grave situation at hand.
Just short of becoming a Beauty Queen, should she volunteer to quit the Grand Finale to take on the situation at hand?
Will her newly-acquired softness come handy, or her inherent toughness emerge again?
