Vidyut Jammwal, the on screen action hero, is also quite the hero in real life. The martial arts enthusiast is passing on his knowledge to the underprivileged kids in Mumbai and Kerala in his spare time.
Reported in the Hindustan Times, a source says that the ‘Commando’ (2013) actor has joined other instructors to provide coaching to kids. “Vidyut has got on board Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) instructors, who coach these kids in martial arts and other action forms in both Mumbai as well as Kerala. The instructors, who are part of Vidyut’s stunt team, also have regular day jobs and some of them are tea stall owners, compounders, et al. Apparently, they are all unified by their dedication to martial arts,” says a source.
When Jammwal was asked if this has inspired him to open a martial arts school in the future, he said, “I’ve never thought of this as a profitable endeavour. All my boys come from very humble backgrounds, but their commitment to martial arts is what drives them. They not only train with me, but they are all part of my film stunt team as well. We are glad that we are able to pass on the art form to these young kids, whose enthusiasm to learn and explore gives us renewed vigour.”
We’ll next get to see Jammwal in ‘Baadshaho’, which also stars Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi.
