“I didn’t see myself in a film of this genre” said Vidyut. He elaborated further, “I had met Sujoy a few times, but, I hadn’t signed any contract or committed myself to the film. It (the story) sounded interesting, but it just wasn’t for me. Sujoy is a great director with an amazing sensibility and I’d like to work with him in the future”
Vidyut has two films announced and in the pipeline for release – Yaara directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia opposite Shruti Haasan, shoot of which is almost complete and Commando 2 produced by Vipul Shah which will start in a few months.
Talking about Yaara he said, “I’m really excited about Yaara. It’s been a tremendous experience playing characters that span age groups across every aspect. The vibe on the sets is so positive and everyone is very upbeat about the film. Working with Tishu sir again has been a phenomenal experience and I’ve gained such nuanced learnings from him which is hard to explain in words.”
When asked about the sequel to the successful action film Commando which the makers are hoping to create a franchise out of, Vidyut said, “Commando was very special to me and will always be. I’m hoping the sequel takes the franchise forward on an even larger and grander scale. Vipul Shah is at the helm of the project so he is the only person who can speak to you about the finer details.”
