Box office reception to PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO notwithstanding, Rajkumar Santoshi is raring to go. While he would first be beginning shoot of his Anil Kapoor starrer which is based on partition, he is also getting groundwork in place for another film which would have Vidyut Jamwal in lead. For an actor who has won quite some accolades since the release of COMMANDO, this is indeed a big ticket affair for him.

“Vidyut is so secure about himself and is patiently waiting to do some good work. He was candid enough to tell him that he has seen my work and liked that over the years. He also told me that he wanted to be a hero in a film of mine. When you see such kind of faith and trust, it is inspiring. I guess it is all so deserving that I give him the best. Mujhe pata hai ki woh chaar chaand laga dega kyonki script hi itni fabulous hai,” says Santoshi.
Many are wondering if after Sunny Deol, Santoshi would be presenting Vidyut in an out and out intense action avatar.
“Well, in the time when musicals like QAYAMAT SE QAYAMAT TAK and MAINE PYAAR KIYA were doing well, it was GHAYAL that had turned out to be a trendsetter,” says Santoshi, “When people had stopped making action films, it was GHAYAL that brought them back in hordes. The entire action and screenplay design can well be termed as pre and post GHAYAL era. Now with my film, there would be new benchmark set in action, considering the kind of martial arts background that Vidyut boasts of. It is going to be something totally unique.”
Well, we are looking forward to that for sure.
