Director Rajkumar Santoshi is trying to get to back into Bollywood with a bang. The National Award winning director is all set to release Phata Poster Nikhla Hero after a long hiatus and he has already put together plans for his next film.
According to reports,Commando actor Vidyut Jamwal has been chose to work in the project,which will be an out and out action.
“It was Vidyut’s high octane stunts in Commando that caught Santoshi’s eye. He was anyways scouting for a young action hero who had the right kind of intensity and body language other than just physique and ability to kick butt. Vidyut fitted the bill,” informs our source.
For a filmmaker who has made two back to back comedies now (his last film was Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani),Rajkumar Santoshi was itching to get back into the intense dramatic zone.
“With the film,Rajkumar Santoshi is now getting into the zone of Ghayal and Ghatak,his two flagship movies that married action with drama and high emotions. In Vidyut Jamwal,he sees a man who can roar and deliver a la Sunny Deol. He also likes the vulnerability that the young actor offers,” the source adds.
While the film’s script is being put into final shape before shooting begins,Vidyut Jamwal has already been sounded off to be well prepared for the part.
Vidyut Jamwal is enthralled with the opportunity since the film’s core stage and setting allows him to go all out when it comes to action.
When contacted,Rajkumar Santoshi confirmed the developments. He said,”Yes,we are working on a script for a big action film. Vidyut is someone who deserves the best. People had been asking me to make something on the lines of Ghayal and Ghatak. This one is going to be it.
