After the humongous success of ‘Commando 3’ featuring Vidyut Jammwal and directed by Aditya Datt, the filmmaker-actor duo is set to take their association to the next level by collaborating once again for their film next titled ‘Crakk’ scheduled to release in 2023.
Presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Action Hero Films & PZ Pictures, ‘Crakk’ will be jointly produced by Vidyut Jammwal, Parag Sanghvi, and Action Hero Films.
As interesting and quirky as it sounds, ‘Crakk’ is going to be India’s first-ever extreme sports action film featuring one of India’s greatest action stars – Vidyut Jammwal who will be seen performing a variety of extreme sports stunts and action sequences all on his own. The film also stars Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez in pivotal roles and is written & directed by Aditya Datt. ‘Crakk’ is the journey of a man from the slums of Mumbai to the world of extreme underground sports.
Actor-producer Vidyut Jammwal 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 Says, “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.”
Aditya Chowksey, Distribution Head, Reliance Entertainment, says, “As India’s first-ever extreme sports action film, ‘Crakk’ is a project we all are super excited about. And with Vidyut, an action icon, we are positive that the moviegoers in India are set for a thrilling ride!”
Producer Parag Sanghvi says, “Getting on this journey of offering a story that needs to be told is superbly fulfilling, that too with my close friends.”
