Vidyut made his debut in April 2011 with the Telugu film “Sakthi” and entered Bollywood a few months later the same year as the antagonist in Nishikant Kamat’s John Abraham-starrer “Force”. His first foray as leading man in a Hindi film was “Commando” in 2013.

Recently, Vidyut denied reports claiming that he will play the antagonist in Vijay’s upcoming film. The actor’s fans were quite excited when it was reported that the he will be seen in Tamil superstar Vijay’s upcoming film, tentatively titled Thalapathy 65. The internet was abuzz with reports claiming that Jammwal will be seen in a negative role in the film.
Reacting to a tweet that stated: “#VidyutJammwal Has Been Roped As a Antagonist for #Thalapathy65 . #Thuppakki Combo #ThalapathyVijay & @VidyutJammwal Again Ready To Set The Screens on Fire.” Vidyut wrote: “I AM WAITING, and would love to.. But this news is false.”
On the professional front, Vidyut will next be seen in the action thriller film “Sanak”, which casts him opposite Bengali actress Rukmini Maitra. The film is directed by Kanishk Varma and produced by Vipul Shah along with Zee Studios. It also features Chandan Roy Sanyal and Neha Dhupia. He also has “Khuda Haafiz Chapter II” in his kitty.
