We went up to his office, and the moment the officer saw me, he sternly asked me to return to training."

"Satish Ji and I were shocked for a moment. Later, we realized it was a misunderstanding. The officer mentioned that I resembled one of the cadets so closely that he couldn't recognize me at all and was about to reprimand me. We all shared a hearty laugh thereafter."

He further added, "And this not only happened once but twice. I had a similar experience with a Lady Officer who shouted at me for not being on the ground, and she later realized that I was an actor and not a real cadet."
