Couldn't find stunt doubles for 'Commando' action scenes: Vidyut

Mumbai, Nov 4 (IANS) In his second Hindi film "Commando", Vidyut Jamwal takes action to next level by combinig Indian and Brazilian martial art forms - kalaripayattu and jiu jitsu respectively. He has done action scenes himself as the filmmakers couldn't find a duplicate to do the fight scenes that involves hand to hand fight.

"The highlight of the film is that I have done the stunt scenes on my own. There are no stunt doubles in the film. So, basically it's the first official action movie with real stunt scenes. I have trained specially for the film," Vidyut, who entered Bollywood as a villain in "Force", told IANS.

"I leaned kalaripayattu from the age of 3. I have lived in Kerala till I was 13 and learned kalaripayattu... then I was the National gymnast. This film is an amalgamation of kalaripayattu and jiu jitsu, which has not been done before," he added.

Vidyut says the action scenes were so difficult that they couldn't find body doubles.

"There are no guns used in the film. It's hand to hand combat action where body is being used to the fullest. We couldn't find stunt doubles for my action scenes as I had acrobat scenes, which is not easy to pull off."

Vidyut plays lead in the film and is paired with former Miss India Pooja Chopra.

"Force" saw Vidyut as a baddie, but he was not scared of being typecast in Bollywood.

"I was not worried at all as I got the awards not for playing negative role in 'Force', but as debutant actor. I believe the audience has accepted me, so I am not scared of being typecast," the 32-year-old said.

Producer-director Vipul Shah's "Commando" was shot in Chandigarh, Patiala and Manali. It is slated for a March or April release.
