The series was produced and directed by the late Raj Kumar Kapoor and shows Shah Rukh Khan’s first time on screen.
Fauji first aired on DD National in 1989.
The 13-episode military drama gives viewers an insight into the training program of army soldiers.
Fauji also focuses on the life of a military spouse, the military culture, and the bonds they develop despite being away from their families.
Now, die-hard Shah Rukh Khan fans can take a trip down memory lane to witness the birth of the now-King of Bollywood.
Eros Now also took to their Instagram account to inform fans of their new addition.
The post’s caption read:
“Ever wondered how King Khan started his journey to success?
“Watch the beginning of this success story with Lt. Abhimanyu Rai and his fellow army recruits!
“Stream all the episodes of #Fauji and take a nostalgic plunge on #ErosNow.”
As well as this, Ridhima Lulla, Chief Content Officer of the Eros Group, commented on the latest addition to their streaming platform.
Lulla said: “Eros Now has always presented interesting and relatable shows for the audience.

“The beautiful series takes viewers into the world of soldiers, a classic way of storytelling presenting a distinctive culture of the military.

Fauji acts as the catapult for Shah Rukh Khan’s rise to stardom.
Now, more than three decades after its original release, the show is getting a re-run on Eros Now.
Fauji also features Vikram Chopra, Sanjay Taneja and Vishwahjeet Pradhan.
Khan clearly excels in each of his Bollywood roles and can bring a variety of different characters to life.
