Mumbai | Actor Vidyut Jamwal feels people of the Jat community, who have been agitating for reservation, should act more rational than emotional. When asked about his view on the unrest caused by the Jat community’s agitation, the Commando actor told reporters here, I think that more than emotions, our Jat brothers should apply their mind. We can be provoked too.

They should use their heart and brain. Violence continues to rage in Haryana with stone-pelting mobs attacking security personnel trying to clear a road blockade and torching government vehicles even as the death toll on nine-day old Jat quota stir was put at 16. Vidyut will be next seen in Commando 2, sequel of the action film Commando.

The actor said he is excited about the project as the first film gave him the recognition he strived for since the beginning of his career. Every actor wants to do a film with which he can get recognition. I am very happy that people recognise me with ‘Commando’. It is a nice feeling that wherever you go, people get inspired by your work.In fact, I have met a few boys who got into Army after watching ‘Commando’, he said. It was for Commando 2 that Vidyut let go of superstar Salman Khan-starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo but he does not regret his decision. I don’t regret not doing ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ but I wanted to work with Salman Khan. I would have done the film, had I not been preparing for ‘Commando 2′.

He is mostly seen in action films, but Vidyut said he wants to dabble in all genres. I want to do all kinds of roles from romantic to comic. I just completed Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Yaara’, which is a romantic drama. I will try all genres but if it is action then I will do even better, the 35-year-old actor said.
