Mumbai, Oct 20 (UiTV/IANS) – Vidyut Jammwal, Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez will be starring in extreme sports action movie ‘Crakk’. Directed by Aditya Datt, the film is scheduled to hit the screens in 2023.
Presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Action Hero Films & PZ Pictures, ‘Crakk’ will be jointly produced by Vidyut, Parag Sanghvi, and Action Hero Films.
Actor-producer Vidyut said: “Looking at the current scenario and the way the audiences have changed, I have realised 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 added: “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.”
He added that ‘Crakk’ is a script that he has 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.”
‘Crakk’ is the journey of a man from the slums of Mumbai to the world of extreme underground sports.
Arjun Rampal said: “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.”
