Chuck Russell Believes Vidyut Jammwal Might Be the New Dwayne Johnson

Even though Vidyut Jammwal is new to Bollywood, he has already won the hearts of many in a very short period of time, especially among the ladies. You might have seen him in movies such as Commando series, Baadshaho and Force, and Junglee.

According to MyNation, here’s what Vidyut himself had to say about his career so far: “Somebody recently asked me how difficult is it for outsiders. I am tired of listening to this question.

Yes, it is difficult, but if you have talent, there will be somebody who will find you out. I came to Mumbai to be a hero, an action hero. I became one the moment Commando released. The film may not have earned a 100-crores but it made me a hero. Everybody in the world, when I travel, people who are action junkies, who love action, they now recognize me, they love me.” He added, “I work on myself even harder now because I have the infrastructure now. I have used my success to better myself and I am working very hard on it. You will not see a single movie where I falter. The producer can falter, the director can falter but I will not falter. I will not give less than 150 percent. That’s what happens when you are an outsider.”

When asked about working with Chuck Russell, he said: “Chuck Russell is very cool with animals, he understands animals so well and knows how to make cinema with them. I was very proud when he told me that he thinks I could be the next big thing in the world. He has said the same thing to Dwayne Johnson The Rock, who is the biggest action star. For me, everything seemed right. There was somebody who believed in me. I am so proud to be a part of this project.”

And when it comes to his movie Junglee, here’s Vidyut’s comment: “After many years, we are getting a film with animal-human bonding. What I learned about animals from this movie is, if they feel safe, secure, if they don’t think you are attacking them, then they will not harm you. It’s not difficult working with animals if you know how to conduct yourself. This film is different from whatever I have done to date. This is a film which you can watch with your family and kids.”

Finally, the actor described what it was like working with animals: “With humans, you can say, wow what a nice shirt you are wearing and he will be happy, tell a girl that she has lost weight and she’ll be happy. For animals, it doesn’t work if you go tell them hey you are looking beautiful today. It makes no difference to them.


Animals are different. They feel you, they understand you even more than you can think. They are more human than us and more sensible than we think. Yes, of course, you need to train yourself, but you also need to apply your common sense while dealing with them. This movie educates people about animals. The elephant is the primary character of the movie. Elephant corridors have been made into human homes, hence they cross the line and come to residential areas. Otherwise, they will never come.”

Junglee was released on March 29, so don’t miss to see it.
