"My father was in the armed forces, and I felt that it was my responsibility to showcase a commando's life the right way. To get a pat on the back from a true blue commando of the Indian forces was extremely encouraging and reassuring," Vidyut said in a statement.
"I am so happy and humbled to represent the brave soldiers who protect our borders and fight for us," he added.
