Renowned filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who has previously worked with Akshay Kumar in Waqt: The Race Against Time and Singh is Kinng, is keen to bring back Akshay in the sequel of Commando. Vipul Shah decided to go with Vidyut Jamwal in the first installment of the film but for Commando 2, Shah is looking forward to work with Akshay Kumar, in a different way. Vipul Shah reportedly has plans to bring Akshay Kumar into the sequel of Commando as a consultant and adviser.
Praising Akshay Kumar and his athletism, Shah says, “Akshay is the best action hero in the country. He was the most excited when we started Commando with Vidyut and, in fact, we’d have liked Akshay to participate more in Commando. But he was busy. Now in Commando 2, we definitely intend to bring Akshay in.”
When asked about his relationship with Akshay, he said, “Akshay and I don’t need to explain our association to the cynics and trouble-makers. I am not insecure about him at all. Our relationship has withstood the test of time.”
When asked about his next directorial venture, Shah said, “We are working on a project that I will direct. But at the moment, I am on the locations of the Hindi remake of Tamil hit Thupakki.” The original film was directed by A R Murugadoss. “Director Murugadoss is completely capable of looking after the project. But as the producer, I have to be there to ensure that my director’s vision is not compromised in any way.”
“Murugadoss needed 150 days from Akshay. After giving that kind of time, Akshay has no space for my film. That’s why I direct him next year,” he added.
While Vipul Shah has kept mum about his sequel to Commando, all we know as of now is that we shall see Akshay Kumar and Vidyut Jamwal together.
