A true blue action hero!

We often hear of actors trying to do their own stunts for their films but seldom have we heard of someone who actually designs the stunts himself rather than just wanting to see it through.

We often hear of actors trying to do their own stunts for their films but seldom have we heard of someone who actually designs the stunts himself rather than just wanting to see it through. This is true for the new age action hero – Vidyut Jammwal. After making a promising debut with Nishikant Kamat’s Force, Vidyut will soon be seen playing the lead in Vipul Shah’s full on action flick – Commando directed by Dilip Ghosh for which he is believed to be designing the stunts with his action team.

Currently being shot in Punjab, Commando is believed to showcase stunts unlike anything that has been seen on the Indian screen. A production insider reveals, “Vipul (Shah) has been very involved and enthusiastic about the film and the film is touted to touch a whole new level of action with stunts and sequences that will take audiences by storm. Also, the fact that this film will see lead actor Vidyut Jammwal perform them himself without any harness or cables is one of the reasons why the film has already been gathering so much buzz within the industry.”

The source adds, “Vidyut has been working closely with the stunt team that has been flown in especially from South Africa for the film. This South African team is believed to have worked on some of large format Hollywood action flicks with the likes of Tom Cruise, Daniel Craig, Matt Damon etc. The stunt director and Vidyut have been working closely together.
