Actor Vidyut Jamwal, who has been roped in by filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi for his next, says his action hero image prompted the director to cast him.

The actor, who made his Bollywood debut with action-packed "Commando" this year, feels honoured with the opportunity to work with the National Award winning director.

"He (Santoshi) had watched 'Commando', and I am fortunate that he watched it. He thought the action was fabulous (in that film)," Vidyut said here Thursday at the launch of a new range of Citizen watches.

"Because he is known to be an actor's director, so he tells an actor how to be on screen. He told me, 'You know you remind me of one of those actors who can do very good action and express very well'," Vidyut said.

Santoshi is known for his hit action-based movies like "Ghayal" and "Ghatak", which were also high on emotions.

"He (Rajkumar Santoshi) wanted to get this genre of action-drama back. So that's why he got in touch with me and I am very honoured that he did," Vidyut, the new-age action hero of Bollywood, said.

Meanwhile, Vidyut is also excited about "Bullet Raja", where he will be seen in a cameo. He is glad he got a chance to choreograph some of the action sequences in the film too.

"I am doing a cameo in 'Bullet Raja'. It is a role of a sharp shooter who is a police inspector. The good thing is that I have also got a chance to do action especially those sequences that I am choreographing," said Vidyut, who is trained in Kalaripayattu - a martial art form of Kerala.

"I'm very excited and happy that people are also waiting for that," he added.
