The story of a spirited Indian teenager, Pradeep Mehra, sprinting towards his dream of joining the Army has inspired lakhs of people. The 19-year-old became an overnight star after filmmaker Vinod Kapri tweeted a video of his midnight run earlier this month.

Vinod Kapri had come across the teenager while driving in Noida. Worried that he was in trouble because he was running so late, Kapri offered him a lift. But Mehra turned down the offer saying he did not want any disruptions in his running routine.

As Kapri followed and recorded the teenager, he revealed that he only got time to run after his shift at a McDonald’s outlet in the city. Pradeep Mehra runs home from work 10 kilometres every day.
