A source close to the team told IANS: "Tigmanshu was very impressed with the promo of Vidyut's forthcoming film 'Commando', which showcases combat-based action done by Vidyut himself without body doubles and cables."
"Tigmanshu has added a very strong action element to the character that Vidyut is supposed to play and has asked Vidyut and his team to design and execute the action sequences for the film, given his extensive martial arts background," the source added.
Irrfan, who was supposed to be part of the project, had to quit after "Bullet Raja" got delayed and his dates clashed with an international project that he had already signed.
Vidyut will start shooting for the film soon.
In "Bullet Raja", Saif Ali Khan plays the lead and the cast also features Sonakshi Sinha and Jimmy Sheirgill, among others.
