Vidyut Jammwal who will soon present his next action flick ‘Junglee’ on the big screen, went through great lengths to perfect his act for the Junglee Picture's production. Apart from turning elephant whisperer, getting in touch with his inner beast, the star also mastered the art of Kalaripayattu and was recently crowned as one of the best martial artists in the world.

 

As seen in the film’s teaser, the actor will be displaying much of his acquired technique on the big screen. In a new promo clip released by Junglee, the actor is seen in his element as he moves with stealth and precision as he imitates the movements of the Komodo dragon, the python and even a scorpion. Delving into the science behind the ancient art form, Vidyut explained, “Kalaripayattu is a discipline that has encouraged people to pick up on strength, sensibility and personality traits of various fantastic animals. It was amazing for me to extend my knowledge of Kalaripayattu by practising animal flow. Most of the conventional exercises in the gym isolate only two muscles at a time. However, training like an animal functionally overcomes this one way to optimize strength, flexibility, mind-body control.”
 

Further elaborating on the uses of this martial art form, he says, “Humans are emotional beasts and hence face trouble in being in the moment. That is why we are not natural fighters like the leopard or the tiger who do not get paralyzed by fear. These animals do not get paralyzed by guilt situation. This awareness, apart from additional strength from animal flow helped me be at ease with the animals I shot with for ‘Junglee’. I was awed by the depth of this stream of martial arts and wanted to bring on big screen with ‘Junglee’.”
 
This upcoming film revolves around Vidyut’s character - a vet, who on his return to his father’s elephant reserve, encounters and fights against an international poachers’ racket.
 
A Junglee Pictures production, ‘Junglee’ is a family action directed by Chuck Russell, produced by Vineet Jain and co-produced by Priti Shahani. The film is set to release in cinemas on 5th April 2019.

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you until it seems that you cannot hold on for a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time when the tide will turn.
