Vidyut Jamwal, the hunky actor who also happens to be a martial artist has proved that he is more than just good looks with unmatchable acting skills by carving a very special place for himself in the industry. In a recent interview with a magazine, he reveals some really interesting things about himself that you probably didn’t know.
Did you know that Vidyut Jamwal, being a trained martial artist never uses a body double for all the amazing action sequences of his movies? “It really feels great when people appreciate me and my stunt scenes. Being trained in Kalaripayattu, I never used any body double for my action scenes. I come from a warrior Rajput clan, who are known for their chivalry and valour. Why will I need a body double? I feel great when people call me the next action hero” the muscly action hero says.
When he was asked if he felt bad about the dearth of action heroines in India, he says that that’s he would like it to be, also that he can’t imagine Indian actresses as action heroines.
“Arre nahi, it should be like that. If women start doing action, then what will men like me do? Indian actresses are better as timid characters. I can’t see Indian heroines donning an action avatar.” Hmmm..we don’t really know if a lot of Indian women will agree with this though.
The Rajputian has a very big thing horse riding too as he reveals how his connection with Rajasthan got him to love the sport.
“I have connections with Rajasthan’s desert city Jaisalmer, which is my mother’s home town. I visit Jaisalmer rarely as most of the extended family has moved from the state. But I love coming to Jodhpur due to my love for horses and horse-riding. Marwari horses are the best in the world and riding them is one of the best experiences. So for the next 4-5 days, I am just going to chill out at a friend’s stud farmhouse, in a village near Jodhpur. He owns marwari horses and what all I want is to horse around the city and enjoy sunny winters.”
