"Vipul sir is someone who I owe a lot for the kind of faith he has shown in me after 'Force'. He promised me that whenever he will do an action film next, he will definitely do it with me, and he stood by it," Vidyut said in a statement.
"(In the film) I had a chance to do the kind of action I would want to see and audiences would like to see on screen. All thanks to him (Shah)...," he added.
Shah's faith in him instils a "sense of responsibility to push myself to be better at my craft with every passing day".
The 32-year-old feels that in real life Shah may come across as a quiet and observant person, but "he's really a very fun loving and intelligent man."
"He and I have conversations ranging from his feedback on my performance to what our favourite food is," he added.
Produced by Reliance Entertainment and Shah's Sunshine Pictures Pvt Ltd and directed by ad-filmmaker-turned-director Dilip Ghosh, "Commando-The War Within" releases in March this year.
