Actor Vidyut Jammwal, whose film Commando releases today, is planning to write a pamphlet that will give women tips on self-defense techniques. A source close to the actor reveals, “Vidyut comes from an army background and wants to do his bit to ensure women’s safety. He is keen to print handy pamphlets of the essential dos and don’ts for women.

These will be distributed in trains, buses and in crowded markets where the possibility of harassment is highest. For the same, he will be talking to the Mumbai and Delhi police to get a tie-up and assistance.” “I believe that women are superior to men in every possible way. They have the power to move mountains if they want to. If given the right guidance and support, that power can make them stand up for themselves and be their own defenders,” says the actor.

Previously, Vidyut had also designed a module for college students and working women. Commando, which is being produced by Vipul Shah, is Vidyut’s second Hindi film. It also stars Pooja Chopra in the female lead.
