Vidyut Jammwal has taken the next step in his career with IB71. The actor has turned a producer for the first time through Sankalp Reddy’s film. Is he ready to reach the level of Spy Universe yet? The actor answers.
IB71’s trailer was unveiled with the media earlier in the day. That is where Vidyut was posed with the question of who would he cast if he were to start his own Spy Universe.
In his element, Vidyut said that he would cast his own people. “Sochenge tab. Abhi wahan tak pahuncha hoon nahi yaar,” the actor-producer said.
Vidyut is known for his action movies. While he started his action journey with Force, it continued with Commando and even Khuda Haafiz. IB71 is now a spy-thriller. That raised the question of whether Vidyut plans to start his own spy universe with the film.
Spy Universe is also back in news after Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan revived Bollywood and how! The movie was a part of YRF’s Spy Universe. The universe also has Salman Khan’s Tiger franchise and Pathaan vs Tiger too.
IB71 is directed by 2017 war film Ghazi’s director Sankalp Reddy. The movie is produced by Vidyut along with Abbas Sayyed, Aditya Shastri, Aditya Chowksey and Shiv Chanana. It is Vidyut’s first production under his banner, Action Hero Films.
The film also stars Anupam Kher and Vishal Jethwa in pivotal roles. It is slated to release in theatres on May 12.
