Serving in the Army is not a job; it is not done out of an obligation or as a source of earning income. People join the Army out of love and respect for their nation. Army officials live for the country and they choose to do so without any complaints and regrets.

Here is a list of some noteworthy names from the Bollywood industry who stepped out of the usual storylines and performed roles that inspired many.
