When it comes to action stars from all over the world, the two names that get duly mentioned are Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bollywood star Vidyut Jammwal. Both are known for their individualistic styles in action and their solid fan fallowing all over the world.
After having the role of Commando in common – one Schwarzenegger essayed in 1985 and the title Vidyut currently owns with élan courtesy his successful and profitable action franchise, the two have another bond – having solid performance oriented roles as their next projects where they are seen in avatars like never before.
Arnold’s next – ‘Aftermath’ directed by Elliot Lester releasing pan India tomorrow by PVR Pictures, has him playing a much older family man in the revenge saga where he’s trying to avenge his family’s death. Vidyut’s next – Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Yaara’, is also a revenge saga and has him essay a strong performance based lead character that ages from 21 to 45 in the film. Both, in their own ways, are powerful characters showcasing a whole new side to the muscle men.
Talking about his anticipation for ‘Aftermath’, Vidyut says:
“Schwarzenegger has always been someone who’s set the bar so high with action. He’s undoubtedly one of the international flag bearers of the action genre who has been responsible for a huge change in the way the genre was perceived and consumed. And now to see him look and do something so different – which is strong and vulnerable in equal measure in ‘Aftermath’ is commendable. I’m looking forward to seeing the film and will be rooting for Arnold all the way.”
