Jaideep's longest audition was for 'Commando'

Mumbai, April 4 (IANS) Actor Jaideep Ahlawat had to face the longest audition of his career to get the role of villain AK 74 in Dilip Ghosh directed forthcoming action thriller "Commando".

He says he came into the picture when the film's casting director Honey Trehan suggested his name to producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah and Ghosh.

"He (Dilip) called me and I did an audition with Honey. Dilipji and Vipulji liked my audition. After that there was an interesting round. That was the longest audition I have had in my career till now," Jaideep said in an interview.

"I played that character during the audition for like 15-20 times in different shades, mannerisms and body language, and dialect. So they were like, 'Ok we need Jaideep for this'," he added.

Jaideep says his character is very different and that such a character has not been written in the last few years.

"When I read the character of A.K. in 'Commando', I found it very different at the script level also. I think this type of character has not been written in the last few years because he has a very weird nature," Jaideep said.

"He always wants to be a bad man. He loves to be a bad man. He likes to scare people, threaten and beat them, but at the same time, he is very chilled out. So the contrast in the behaviour and the character is very scary and weird. So the character is very different from that in 'Vishwaroop', 'Gangs Of Wasseypur' and 'Aatma'," he added.

"Commando" also features Vidyut Jamwal and former Miss India Pooja Chopra in the lead role.

The film releases April 12.
