An Indian man has received several offers of help after a video of him running home from work went viral.

The video was shot by filmmaker Vinod Kapri, who offered a lift to the 19-year-old Pradeep Mehra as he ran past his car.

But Mr. Mehra turned down the offer, saying he ran around 10km (six miles) every night to keep himself in shape to join the Indian Army.

The video, uploaded on Sunday evening, has more than 6 million views so far.

Mr. Mehra was running home on Saturday after a night shift at a McDonald’s outlet in Noida city – on the outskirts of the national capital Delhi – when Kapri spotted him.

The filmmaker said he offered the man a lift after seeing him run with a backpack, thinking he might be in trouble.

He shot the video from his car as he slowly drove alongside Mr. Mehra, asking him questions to understand why he refused the lift.

“You will fall in love with this child if you listen to his reason,” the director wrote as he shared the video on Twitter.
