Actor Vidyut Jammwal has come far in his journey in the B-Town after making his debut in the 2011 movie Force alongside John Abraham. Although Jammwal played a grey shade role in the movie, he won multiple best debut awards including the Filmfare Award for the best male debut.
Amid the on-going nepotism debate, Vidyut Jammwal said that he does not agree with the notion that one cannot make friends in Bollywood. The 39-year old actor said that he is not a star kid and has survived in the industry because of his friendship.
In an interaction with IANS, Jammwal said, “I’ve heard this in the industry since I came in that you can’t make good friends in the industry. I don’t believe it. I am not a star son. I have only survived over here because of friendship. Like a friend said, ‘I believe in you, but I don’t have a budget’. So, people have really stood by me as I have stood by them.”
Vidyut Jammwal is known for his roles in action-drama films especially the Commando series. The actor enjoys a massive fan following and his films are hailed by them.
On the work front, Vidyut will b next seen in a movie titled Yaara. The center of the film is friendship and it features Amit Sadh, Kenny Basumatry, and Vijay Varma.
During the interview, the Junglee actor also opened up about his friendship with his co-stars. He said, “I can say that these guys are my very good friends. When you see the film you can see there’s nothing fake.”
The actor then recalled a moment with the Gully Boy fame Vijay Varma during the shoot of Yaara in Dehradun. Jammwal said, “I remember when we were sitting I told him, ‘tu bahut badha star banega, ladke (you’ll become a very big star, boy)’, and he started laughing. After ‘Yaara’, he shot for ‘Gully Boy’. And the day I was proud for him, I had not been proud like this for anybody in a long time. This is the kind of friendship I have with Vijay, Amit Sadh, and Kenny Basumatry.”
Helmed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, Yaara is a Bollywood remake of the French film Gang Story. The film will release on the occasion of Friendship Day, July 30, on Zee5.
