During the promotions for Commando, action-man Vidyut Jammwal made a visit to the army training center at Banaras, 39 GTC. The army officers and trainers briefed Vidyut on how a soldier defends himself or prepares for an attack with his enemies. There was a brief session on each of the strategies which an Indian soldier is expected to prepare.
In fact, Vidyut himself partook in this rigorous training and performed the twenty-six obstacle course which a soldier performs during his training.
Said Vidyut about the experience, “The welcome I got when I visited the jawans from the Gorkha regiment in Benaras a couple of days ago, was just too fantastic. They told us how much they liked the trailer of Commando and the action sequences in it. And now that they’ve watched the film, they were very proud that we have been able to honestly represent their life and journey. I am very humbled by their feedback. They are the real action heroes!”
