A step you need to take, Jammwal on production house
In an interview with Deadline, Jammwal said that his "journey wasn't planned." "I come from an army background, for me it [acting] was only just a dream. It didn't matter if I became a stuntman, as long as I was in the frame doing action," he revealed. When asked why he launched his production house, Jammwal said, "It's a step you need to take."
'Idea is to do content that I've always enjoyed watching'
"The idea is to do content that I've always enjoyed watching, but not necessarily action films. I feel like I'm in a place where I can pick and choose what I'd like my audience to watch, what I'd like the nation to watch," Jammwal shared.
Jammwal made his debut with 'Force' opposite John Abraham
The 40-year-old, who is a vegan, made his debut in 2011 with Force, opposite John Abraham, where he was the main antagonist, Vishnu. He later appeared in Stanley Ka Dabba in a small role that same year. 2011 also marked his debut in Telugu film industry with Sakthi, which released in April. Six months later, his second Telugu venture, Oosaravelli, had hit the theaters.
Jammwal has 'Sanak', sequel to 'Khuda Haafiz' in his kitty
