New Delhi: Actor Vidyut Jamwal, who has done some daredevil stunts in his upcoming movie Commando, wants to be typecast as an action hero.

"I am born to do action. I can't see myself doing anything else. It is not a good thing to say but I want to be typecast as an action hero. I don't want to do a movie that has no action," Jamwal told PTI.

The 34-year-old actor started his Bollywood journey with a negative role in "Force", starring John Abraham. He played the role of a dreaded gangster 'Vishnu' in the film which earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.

"Commando" is the story of an Indian Army officer, who during a training session gets inside Chinese Border by mistake. The film chronicles his struggle to get back.

Jamwal is a trained martial artist and is also proficient in the art of Kalaripayattu. He has performed all the action sequences and stunts in the movie by himself and without the help of cables.

"The USP of the movie is action. No cables were used in the movie. This is the first Indian movie that has achieved something like that," the actor said.

Jamwal, who plays the role of Captain Karanvir Dogra in the film, says his army background helped him in portraying his character in the movie.
