2016 was a bad year for sequels but that does not mean this year will be same again. With movies like Commando 2 and Naam Shabana releasing this month, March is all about prequels and sequels. The failures of sequels like Force 2 and Rock On 2 could make any actor worry about the fate of his/her own movie but not Vidyut Jammwal. He isn't worried when it comes to box - office numbers and the same goes for his co-star Adah Sharma. They trust the makers and the director of their movie and are quite unperturbed by this so-called number game. But are they really confident enough or a bit nervous? BollywoodLife finds it out in an EXCLUSIVE chat with the actors. Read on..
Vidyut, 2016 wasn’t a great year for sequels so were you under pressure with Commando 2?
If Commando 2 would have released in 2016 then it would have been a great year for sequels (smiles). There was no pressure as such but huge responsibility since Commando was a success. We were supposed to create a benchmark and yes we did that with Commando 2.
Adah, do you feel actresses are always stereotyped in our movies?
Yes, but sometimes actresses chose to get stereotyped by opting for similar genres. I personally have explored different genres till date in my career – horror, rom-com, action so I don’t think I am stereotyping myself.
Vidyut, do you fear that the audience will categorise you as only an action hero?
Firstly fear is not a part of my vocabulary. In fact, I am very proud that I am being stereotyped. I am happy for the fact that I keep raising the bar of the action. When you are excellent at something, you want to keep doing it better every time so I am happy with that.
Adah, out of all the genres, which is your comfort zone?
Romance is something that I would like to believe I am good at.
Vidyut: Are you saying you are not good with action?
Adah: I didn’t have much of the action scenes to do in Commando against a hardcore romantic movie which I did with seven songs. So I guess I am better with romance.
Vidyut, do you think men are objectified in the movies?
(Laughs) Objectified? I would love to be objectified. Jo bhi hai, kara lo.
Adah: Actors should be a little objectified in fact. It’s a visual medium and people like to see good looking people and lust after them. (Also Read: Vidyut Jammwal belives Commando 2 is better and bigger)
Vidyut, you are sharing screen space with Freddy Daruwala who made his debut with your role in the remake of Thupakki (Holiday), it’s a coincidence, right?
I have known Freddy for quite a long time since we both modelled together. I have known Esha as well so it was a nice reunion.
