Vidyut Jammwal to headline extreme sports action film Crakk, Jacqueline Fernandez, Arjun Rampal in cast
Written and directed by Aditya Datt, the film has gone on floors in Poland
After 2019's Commando 3, actor Vidyut Jammwal and director Aditya Datt are collaborating again for an extreme sports action film titled Crakk.
Pegged as India's first film in the genre, Crakk will see Vidyut performing a variety of extreme sports stunts and action sequences on his own. The film also stars Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez in key roles. Written and directed by Aditya Datt, Crakk follows the journey of a man from the slums of Mumbai to the world of extreme underground sports.
Talking about the film, Vidyut says, "Looking at the current scenario and the way the audiences have changed, I have realized that everyone puts limits on everything they do, and it spreads in work, and the environment. This changing scenario has confirmed that there are no limits but only plateaus and we must not stay there. We must go beyond them. Hence a movie on extreme sports from India."
Director Aditya Datt says, “After the success of ‘Table No 21’ back in 2012, I was told it was way ahead of its time, as it was a thriller that revolved around live-streamed games. I guess they were talking about today when time has indeed changed. ‘Crakk’ is a script I have been working from the last 4 years, to up the game and challenge oneself, by narrating a story that has sports, gaming, action, drama and thrill.”
Arjun Rampal shares, "Here I am in Crakk which just offers all of the above and a lot more. Vidyut is just a phenomenal athlete and I learn something from him every day. His dedication to perfect action sequences is truly commendable.”
Jacqueline Fernandez says, "I was thoroughly impressed by the script narration of 'Crakk' and immediately decided to be a part of such a unique story. I'm really looking forward to working with Vidyut and the rest of the team.” Crakk (Jeetegaa Toh Jiyegaa!) has gone on floors in Poland. The film is scheduled to release in 2023.
