Vidyut Jammwal is set to up the action quotient as an Army man
He is trained in the traditional Indian martial art form of Kalaripayattu, and action is, indeed, Vidyut Jammwal’s forte. Expect the actor to up the action quotient, as he dons the uniform of an Army man in his next film, Baadshaho.
Vidyut says, “I could relate to the fact that he is an Army officer who is disciplined, witty, and quirky.” However, more than the character itself, what made him take up the role was the fact that Milan Luthria was directing the film. “I was, for a very long time, dying to work with him. And when he narrated this script to me, it sounded perfect. So the reason basically was Milan,” says the actor.
Vidyut plays one of the six characters whose journey the film traces, during the Emergency in India between 1975 and 1977. And if Milan Luthria was the reason for him to sign up for the film, Vidyut’s biggest takeaway has been from actor Ajay Devgn, his co-star in this film and one of Bollywood’s most wellestablished action stars. “When you’re working with one of the most brilliant action heroes in the country, Ajay Devgn, you learn so much,” says Vidyut. “He knows it all… he has seen it all… I enjoyed the time I spent with Ajay sir.”
