Actor Vidyut Jamwal during the city promotion for his upcoming film COMMANDO, made a visit to the army training center at Benaras, 39 GTC. There the army officers and trainers briefed Vidyut on how does a soldier defend himself or prepares for an attack with his enemies. There was a brief session on each of the strategy which an Indian soldier is expected to prepare.
Vidyut himself indulged in this rigorous training and performed the 26 obstacle training which a soldier performs during his training. The actor performed all the 26 obstacles which includes, rock climbing, rope climbing, walking the Burma Bridge etc within a very short span of time.
The Major present during the session was sheer impressed by the actor's strength and energy. Soldiers present at the training were also of the same opinion. The Indian military was quite happy with having Vidyut Jamwal come and visit the center.
The training center, 39 GTC is out of bounds for civilians. Vidyut's father was in the Indian army and hence he managed to get permissions for this visit. It was also an honor for the actor to meet the soldiers first hand.

Vidyut is playing the role of a Commando in his film directed by Dilip Ghosh and produced by Vipul shah.
As the role of the actor has a strong connect with an Army Officer, the actor wanted to witness the training of our very own Indian soldiers at the camp itself.
Vidyut says, "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 hugged me and my team and were telling us how much they liked the trailer and the action sequences in it. And now that they've watched the film, they were very proud that someone who's in a way has been able to honestly represent their life and journey. I am very humbled by their feedback. They are the real action heroes!"
