Seven years after he made his Bollywood debut with Commando, Vidyut Jammwal is back with the third edition of the actioner. The franchise has given him a free hand to put his athletic prowess on display. "People told me that models cannot act, and an actor from a non-filmy background will only survive if he delivers a Rs 100 crore hit. I have proved them wrong. When I did the first movie, I didn't think that we'd come out with another. Now, I feel that this franchise will not stop," says the actor, arguing that regardless of the box-office figures it earns, it continues to "inspire" people. "Till the time it [the film] keeps inspiring people, I will keep making Commando."

Even on a restricted budget, Jammwal says the team has attempted to outshine past editions. "It's a high risk job and hence, things are perfectly calculated before rolling. I do not go overboard when I spar with my opponent."
