Gurmeet Choudhary, who will be seen playing an army officer in J P Dutta’s highly-anticipated movie, PALTAN, got emotional at the trailer launch of the war drama.

Interestingly, the actor who looks exactly like an army soldier in the movie, got quite emotional at the trailer launch talking about his father, who served in the Indian Army.

Watch the trailer here:


PALTAN is quite special to Gurmeet, not just because he got the opportunity to work with the veteran filmmaker for the first time but also the fact that he got trained by his father, Major Sitaram Choudhary for his character of an Army officer in the movie.

Reminiscing about his father, he said,

“My father just got retired from the Army. He always wanted me to be a soldier but I chose to become an actor. He didn’t speak to me for 3 years because of that. I am quite lucky that I got the opportunity to work with JP Dutta sir. With PALTAN, I could fulfil a small bit of his dream.”
