Vidyut Jammwal is one of the only few actors of Bollywood at present, helming action films like a pro! Known for his power packed moves and atleic body, the 41-year-old surely can pull off any stunt, without a body double, with the utmost ease, leaving viewers in awe. But the action star himself, is not a big fan of action movies, yes you got that right! Vidyut himself revealed in one of his candid interviews, how he dislikes watching action films. Full marks for honesty though!
Vidyut Shared how he can only act in action films, but can’t watch one. “I don’t enjoy watching action, the genre… It gives me a headache. There’s too much ‘dang-dhadang’. I like performing it. I have always enjoyed watching romantic movies more than anything else,” he said. As a kid, when I would watch Jackie Chan, I used to enjoy the high of (watching) him doing crazy stuff. Now I’m giving that to other people and I enjoy that” he continued.
He further shared how despite not being a big fan of thriller movies, he does indeed enjoy shooting them. “We don’t have the actors to perform (such stunts), we don’t have the directors to make it. We have people who believe they can make action films but they really don’t have the ability to make. To be shooting an action film, you need to really enjoy the genre, how one does the kick and punch” he said.
“You need to have some background in fighting. I’m not saying they have to be martial artistes but they need to understand human abilities. I don’t think we have too many people here doing that,” he pointed out.
He further added “If I find someone who understands it, I’ll work with them. Action is the number one genre but we don’t have don’t directors with a vision like that, I want to bet on the directors who genuinely have it in them (to make films) but don’t have the ability to socialise and be out there in parties. I wanted to give a break to people like me and, by break, I don’t mean I’m ‘launching’ them. I just wanted to bet on people because somebody had bet on me too.”
The action star has many movies like the ‘Indian 2’, ‘Sher Singh Raana’, ‘Khuda Haafiz Chaper 2’ in his kitty for release this year.
