Actor Vidyut Jammwal has been roped in for Mahesh Manjrekar's return to the gangster drama, Power. Reports suggest that the film will be along the lines of Manjrekar's hit Vaastav (1999).
The film, tentatively titled Power, will be produced by Vijay Galani. In a statement, Galani said, "I'm very happy to team up with National Award-winning director Mahesh Manjrekar. The film is full on action which is Mahesh's forte. It is on the lines of Vaastav and Vidyut who is known for his action is now the lead of our film."
Jammwal is coming off the back of his latest action drama, Junglee. Directed by Chuck Russell, the film saw Jamwwal play a vet with a special relationship with an elephant.
Manjrekar, on the other hand, last directed the successful two parts of Bhaai: Vyakti Ki Valli (2019) earlier this year. Power will also mark the return of Manjrekar to directing Hindi films since City Of Gold - Mumbai 1982: Ek Ankahee Kahani (2010).
