Vidyut Jammwal: Vipul Shah wants to make action film with me and Akshay Kumar

Vidyut Jammwal has collaborated with Vipul Shah on films like “Commando” and “Force” and the actor says the filmmaker is keen to make an action movie with him and superstar Akshay Kumar.

There were reports that the “Airlift” star would be part of Vipul’s “Commando 2”, which stars Vidyut, though not as an actor but a consultant and advisor.

When asked about it, Vidyut told PTI, “I had a conversation with Vipul the other day but he did not mention anything of this sort. I don’t have any clue about this but Vipul has told me, ‘I think it would be great if you and Akshay do an action movie together.’ Vipul wants to make an action film with both of us.”

Just four-film-old, Vidyut has made a mark in the industry with his action-packed roles and the actor said he takes it seriously and wants to promote martial arts and other such art forms through his work.

“It feels great that people recognise me with the action I have done in movies. I have met many young boys, who told me that they joined Army after watching ‘Commando’. That’s wonderful and such reactions inspire me to work harder.

“It is not an easy industry to be in, so, it’s important to have an X-factor or an edge over others. My training in martial arts is one such thing which gives me that edge over my contemporaries. I want to use it to my advantage.”

The 35-year-old actor recently performed a daring stunt at Zee Cine Awards 2016 with a team of stuntmen of filmmaker Rohit Shetty.

Vidyut said he was thrilled when Rohit approached him for the sequence, which paid a homage to film stuntmen.

“It was a big moment for me that a director like Rohit Shetty approached me perform a stunt. He told me, ‘I can’t think of anyone else in the industry who can do this.’ This is a huge compliment for me. The way he and his team took care of my security was brilliant. I had a great time working on it.”

Zee Cine Awards 2016, boasting of performances by Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra, will premiere on Saturday night on Zee Cinema.
