Filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who has worked worked with Akshay Kumar in films such as Waqt: The Race Against Time and Singh Is Kinng, chose to work with debutant Vidyut Jamwal in his recently released film, Commando. But for Commando 2, Shah will collaborate with his favourite actor Akshay again, however in a different way. Currently shooting with Akshay, Shah plans to bring him into the sequel of Commando as a consultant and adviser.
“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,” said Shah.
About his equation 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.”
As for his next directorial venture, Shah says, “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,” he adds.
Despite the uneven writing, the film works because it has heart.
