Waiting for something as exciting as ‘Thuppakki’: Vidyut Jamwal

Chennai: Actor Vidyut Jamwal, who proved his mettle in Tamil films such as “Billa 2” and “Anjaan”, says he’s waiting for an opportunity to essay a role as powerful as the one he played in A.R Murugadoss-directed “Thuppakki”.

“Lot of people kept asking me why I didn’t take up more projects after ‘Thuppakki’. Honestly, I didn’t get anything as exciting and powerful as that role. The reason I did ‘Anjaan’ was because I really liked my role and the film had good content,” Vidyut told IANS.  In “Thuppakki”, Vidyut played a menacing leader of a sleeper cell group, and his role was lauded by critics and fans alike. In Bollywood, Vidyut is busy with a slew of projects.

First up is “Yaara” with Irrfan Khan and Shruti Haasan. “It’s a story about the characters aging from young guns to mature adults. It’s about friendship, love and betrayal,” he said, adding that Shruti is an incredible co-star. “Apart from the fact that she’s the daughter of one of India’s biggest superstar (Kamal Haasan), she’s someone who has made her own path in the industry. I really respect her for that”, he added. Vidyut will soon start working on the sequel to his 2013 action film “Commando”.
