Fauji was perhaps one of the earliest true "Reality TV Shows" in India - a notice at the beginning proclaimed all incidents shown in the program are true, with names of people and places changed for security reasons. Being all about Commando training camps and centers of the Indian military, such suppression of real names and places make perfect sense.

The cast had Rakesh Sharma, the very beautiful actresses Amina S Kapoor and Manjula Avatar, Vikram Chopra, Gautam Bhardwaj, A Kannan and more. The classic Fauji was written, directed and produced by Colonel Kapoor.

Fauji 2 - a sequel of Fauji - will be aired soon on Colors TV Channel in India. According to reports, including a post on zorsebol, SRK wuill play Abhimanyu Singh, whose wife is Dr Madhu Rai played by TV actress Shruti Ulfat. Abhimanyu and Shruti have a son played by Pulkit Samrat - assumedly this son is the one going to commando training camps. Ramesh Dev will play Pulkit's grandfather.
