Mumbai, April 16 (IANS) After two back-to-back hits, it seems Vidyut Jamwal has been accepted as the new action hero in Bollywood. He says any genre with a scope for action would interest him.
He unleashed his magic on the big screen for Hindi movie viewers as the antagonist in John Abraham-starrer “Force” and now he has impressed them as action hero in the recently released “Commando”.
Talking about the kind of projects he is looking forward to, Vidyut told IANS: “Anything that will have challenge in terms of action, I will do it. I am not restricting myself, but it has to do something with action.”
Currently shooting for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s “Bullet Raja”, the 34-year-old actor said: “I would love to do action comedy, action drama, action romance. I have been doing action from the age of three and I want to continue doing that. I am happy being typecast as action hero.”
A national-level gymnast and an expert in Kalaripayattu – a form of martial arts from Kerala, he flexed his muscles and flaunted his martial art expertise for “Commando” and claims his kind of stunts are inimitable.
“Kind of action that I do, I don’t think anybody else is doing that kind of action. I am happy doing that and I was born to do action,” he added.
Directed by Dilip Ghosh, “Commando” was described as an out and out Vidyut film. The never seen before action scenes received positive response and helped the film garner Rs.11.18 crore at the box office in the opening weekend.
“There is a lot of happiness now. The response has been wonderful. This was my first solo and I tried a new thing. There was a lot of excitement and now there is a lot of happiness,” said the actor.
In “Commando”, that came out April 12, he was seen with former Miss India Pooja Chopra.
