Gurmeet Choudhary’s childhood dream fulfilled!


The debacle of his last few films has not affected the actors adventure spirits. Actor Gurmeet Choudhary decided to train to fly and operate a chopper, during his stay in Durban, South Africa.  Belonging to an army background, the actor has inherited the fondness for adrenaline rush from his father. The “Wajha Tum Ho” actor while in South Africa for promotional work decided  to pursue his childhood dream in his spare time.

“This trip to Africa was special in so many ways. I’m an adventure junkie, so it goes without saying that Africa was the perfect place [for me]. I finally ticked off another goal from my bucket list. I’ve always wanted to learn to fly a chopper. I belong to an army background and always wanted to learn the basics of flying a helicopter, and I finally managed to learn it,” says Gurmeeet

“It has been Gurmeet’s childhood dream to fly helicopters. So he learnt the basics of flying them at a training centre in Durban, and learnt to shoot guns as well. He had visited Africa for work, but he decided to stay back specially for the flying lessons,” a source close to the actor said.
