Video of Noida boy shared by Vinod Kapri goes viral: How hard-working are you? You will be forced to think about it after seeing the video of a 19-year-old boy who runs 10 km to home every night after work. The video is captured by filmmaker Vinod Kapri.

Former President of India A. P. J. Abdul Kalam once said, "Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep." It's a perfect quote for this 19-year-old boy who runs 10 km to home every night after work as he aspires to join the Indian Army in the future.

The National Film Award-winning filmmaker Vinod Kapri took to Twitter and shared the video which has gone viral. He called it "PURE GOLD". He also wrote, "You will fall in love with this child if you listen to the reason".

The 19-year-old Pradeep Mehra is bound to inspire many, especially the youth of India. The video was captured when Vinod Kapri, who was driving, saw Pradeep running with a bag on his shoulder at midnight in Noida. The filmmaker offered the boy a lift, however, Pradeep politely refused to go for it. He said that he will "run and go home".

Kapri was surprised. He asked Pradeep, why he was running, to which he replied, "I always run on my way back home".

This led Kapri to ask some more questions to Pradeep, who works at McDonald's, Sector 16, Noida. He belongs to Almora, Uttarakhand. The filmmaker again offered Pradeep a lift to home, but the latter declined the offer again. He said, "No, otherwise I don't get time to run and that it will break his routine".

Vinod also asked Pradeep about his parents and family. Pradeep told Vinod Kapri that his mother was hospitalised, and that he stays with his brother.

Later, Kapri told Pradeep that "this clip will go viral" to which Pradeep humbly replied, "Who is going to recognise me!" and that if it goes viral then "It's okay. I am not doing anything wrong".
