Till date, John Abraham’s Force has been making news thanks to his action avatar. While the film’s villain, Vidyut Jamwal, has been kept under wraps. Now, the filmmakers have come up with a special launch event for him, where he will showcase his martial arts skills along with young boys handpicked from the slums of Dharavi and Wadala.

Apparently, when Vidyut first moved to Mumbai from Kerala, he had gathered together a few kids boys who had exemplary martial arts skills and interest from surrounding slum areas. He then started training them in stunts for entertainment. “I have developed my own unique style which is an amalgamation of Kalari, gymnastics, Kung Fu, weapon usage and jiu-jitsu, which we will see in the film too,” says Vidyut, who started training in Kalari at the age of three in Kerala, when he was living in an ashram there.

The kids from Dharavi and Wadala are engaged in different jobs from selling books, brooms and fish on Mumbai’s local trains to working as a compounder, and managing a vada pav stall. But they still manage to come together about twice a day to train and conjure up new acrobatic stunts, which will also be seen in the film.

For Force, Vidyut has worked out as hard as his reel life nemesis John, and his body took everyone by surprise, since it turned out to look as muscular and toned as John’s. By the age of nine, Vidyut, an army officer’s son, started training in gymnastics. Most of his life, he has been developing his martial arts skills and traveled to different parts of the world to excel in it.
