Vidyut Jammwal has made the nation proud with his latest achievement. Reportedly, a leading US website named Looper recently released a list of top martial artists across the globe; and the 'Junglee' actor is the only Indian to have made it to this prestigious list.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "Vidyut Jammwal is making news... An international website has ranked him amongst the top martial artists in the world... Vidyut's forthcoming film #Junglee readies for release on 5 April 2019... Produced by Junglee Pictures... Directed by Chuck Russell... Glimpses from the film"
Meanwhile, the actor told IANS, "Honours like this help me give back to the community of Kalaripayattu to which I owe my life and all this success." He further added, "It has been a very fulfilling journey and I am looking forward to the audience experiencing more of Kalaripayattu in my upcoming film Junglee."
Vidyut recently wrapped up the shooting for Junglee, which is about a unique relationship between a man and elephants. Produced by Junglee Pictures, it is directed by Chuck Russell, who has helmed Hollywood films such as The Mask, Eraser and The Scorpion King.
Talking about Vidyut, Russell said, "It is great to see Vidyut being noted as the rising star in action films across the world. He has a rare combination of cinematic charm and killer moves that will make him unstoppable after this film."
"What really distinguishes Vidyut is his deep knowledge of the martial art Kalaripayattu and his understanding of its philosophy to not only protect and fight but also use it to heal. I had the pleasure of creating his role in Junglee to play his style of action, supporting a positive message. I can't wait for audiences to see it on the big screen."
To this, Vidyut said, "Chuck's kind words are icing on the cake. Working with him on Junglee was like a dream come true. He pushed me to extract one of my best performances so far."
Junglee is slated to hit the theatrical screens on 5 April, 2019.
