Going anonymous for reasons I hope you can anticipate.
To begin with, no one’s ever a liability for the army the way you think. If you’re not good enough, you’ll be rejected at the NDA/OTA/IMA itself. So don’t worry about that.
The biggest thing that you need in order to become a soldier is mental strength. Once you’re determined that you’re not afraid of facing the enemy, you know you’re good to go. As far as the physical issues are concerned, you don’t need to be a body builder or something: a general level of fitness and ability to bear hard training will do. You’ll receive physical training at the academy so don’t worry about that. However, to be at an advantage, going to a gym and keeping a check on your weight and, in correlation, your height will be good.
See, friend, it’s hard to judge right here whether you’ll be selected. All you need to do is just be sure to be eligible for applying. Make sure you meet the minimum requirements. Check out information on SSB Interview Tips & Coaching | SSBCrack. Objectively, you can only count on your own mental strength and determination. The rest is dependent on whether your body supports you through it.

If you’re confused whether to apply or not, don’t think about what can happen in the future. If you’re determined and excited enough to apply, just go for it. Not everyone bears the valour to voluntarily sign up for the defence so I think the thought itself sets you apart. If you truly want to do it, just go for it. That’s all I would say.
