Vidyut Jammwal is set to return to the big screen after three years with Commando 2, a sequel to his 2013 actioner. Credited for his high octane action squences, the actor says he doesn't mind being bracketed as an action hero.

"I don't mind being stereotyped. My fans compliment me for my stunts. I am one of the few actors who executes advanced sequences without using a body double. I love the action hero tag," he says.

Talking about the film, he asserts being part of Commando was a big responsibility. "That's because Vipul Shah (producer) was launching me as an action hero. I had to raise the bar in the sequel, because we had to come up with something bigger and better. I have personally choreographed all stunts in this film and am confident that it will do well. We hope to make another film in this franchise."

Vidyut points out that his love for action will not keep him from experimenting with different roles. "My upcoming films, Yaara (by Tigmanshu Dhulia) and Baadshaho (by Milan Luthria) have more drama than action. If a director believes that I will suit the part, I am willing to take up the film," he reasons.
