Mumbai, Feb 22 (IANS) Action star Vidyut Jamwal says his upcoming film “Commando 2” has better action, better storyline, and shooting was more expensive compared to the earlier film.
“The commandos are doing better job this time — you’ll see better action, storyline is better, we’re spending a lot of money this time, several people have faith in it, everything is better and bigger,” Vidyut said at a press meet on the film’s sets.
“We are not aware which film receives what response. There are numerous action films coming up and all will receive a different response, depending on how it is shot, who the actor is,” he added.
The film has been produced by “Namastey London” director Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who was responsible for giving Vidyut the break as a baddie opposite John Abraham in “Force”, which fetched him the Filmfare award for best debut.
Shah had also produced Vidyut’s earlier film “Commando”.
“Every actor needs a film through which he receives an identity, and through Vipul Shah, I got ‘Force’, then ‘Commando’, and I’m delighted with the fact that people recognise me through ‘Commando’,” he said.
“You feel good when you visit a place and see people inspired by you. I’ve seen many boys who had joined the army after watching ‘Commando’, and they were inspired that they have to live a regimental life,” he said.
“My father was in the Indian Army, so since childhood, I have seen a lot of army life. It was his wish that I join the army. My grandfather and all my family members were in the army. Though I didn’t join the army, my parents were very happy when I had signed ‘Commando’, they thought I became a commando,” he added.
Having undergone training in various forms of martial arts, Vidyut has showed his action moves in all films including “Bullett Raja” and southern films, but said he is open to try other genres.
“I’ll do all kinds of roles, if it has action, I’ll do it with more interest. And if people accept different types of roles, the feeling is very good,” he said.
While “Commando” saw Pooja Chopra playing the lead role, the heroine of “Commando 2” is still under wraps.
