Vidyut Jammwal is known for his martial arts and the action roles he plays in films.
Career and Lifestyle Info
Given his elaborate expertise in martial arts, he has committed himself to stunt and action training in the world of cinema.
His first Bollywood project, Force, a remake of the Tamil film Kaaka Kaaka, alongside John Abraham, did moderately well at the Box Office.
He subsequently played supporting roles in the Telugu films Shakti and Oosaravelli, starring NTR. In 2012, Jammwal made his debut in Tamil cinema with Billa II as the antagonist opposite Ajith Kumar.
For his role, he received critical appreciation. He worked on another Tamil film Thuppakki, opposite actor Vijay which became a blockbuster.
He also received an award for the Best Actor in a Negative Role in SIIMA Awards for the film. He also played a supporting role in another Tamil film Anjaan, alongside Suriya.
In his next film Commando, he performed real-world combat-based action without the aid of stuntmen. The trailer received over a million hits within a week of launching.
After the success of Commando, he played a sharpshooter cop in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullett Raja. Known for his gritty and edgy cinematic style, Tigmanshu cast him once again for his next directorial venture, Yaara – a remake of the French film Les Lyonnais.
Yaara was one of three films Vidyut signed for – the other two being large format films by director Ram Madhvani, creating an aura similar to the Hollywood flick 300.
In 2018, Jammwal will star opposite Shruti Haasan in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s film Yaara. They are both also together for Mahesh Manjrekar’s untitled drama as well.
Family and Personal Info
Jammwal was born in Jammu in a Rajput family. He was one of three children born to an Indian Army officer, lived in various parts of India (owing to his father’s transferable job), and trained in Kalaripayattu in an ashram in Palakkad Kerala since he was three years old, which was run by his mother.
He traveled to many countries training with martial artists in various forms, some of which found their base in Kalaripayattu.
After earning a degree in martial arts, Jammwal traveled to over 25 countries, where he performed in live-action shows.
He participated as a contestant in Gladrags in 2000 and has been living in Mumbai ever since. He was a model in Delhi since 1996, but after a dismal career in modeling, he landed his debut role in Shakti, a Telugu film.
He later landed his first role in a Bollywood movie in Nishikant Kamat’s Force after one audition.
Jammwal kicked off an initiative to teach college-going girls and working professionals self-defense techniques. He hosted a camp at a college festival in Mumbai recently.
Jammwal is a vegan. In a new PETA campaign for India’s National Nutrition Week, the actor shows off his muscular physique alongside the words “Kick the meat habit. Go vegan.”
He and Kangana Ranaut were adjudged as PETA India’s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2013. His workout combines martial arts training with various other cardiovascular, weight, and interval training elements.
Jammwal has recently adopted and added Anti Gravity Yoga and Suspension TRX to his intense workout regime. Jammwal is also a very good rock climber, which adds to his workout regime.
