Vidyut Jammwal To Teach Women To Protect Themselves

In the aftermath of the horrific Delhi gangrape case, actor Vidyut Jammwal had opined that women should learn to defend themselves, without having to rely on others for protection and it seems that the Force guy has decided to get pro-active about it.

Sources close to the actor claim that Vidyut will now conduct self-defence workshops for working women as well as college students at Andheri and Bandra. The workshop will be aimed at training the women in simple self-defence techniques, which will help them counter any physical attack.

Vidyut will also be seen rescuing a damsel in distress on the silver screen in Vipul Shah flick Commando, which also stars former Miss India Pooja Chopra.
