It is a proud moment for actor Vidyut Jammwal as his recent film Junglee has won two awards in China. The actor was in China this week for the Jackie Chan International Film Week where Junglee Pictures’ film bagged two awards, for Best Action Sequence Choreographer and Best Action Family film. Over 150 films from across the globe were competing in the film week. Ecstatic about receiving the honours, in his acceptance speech, the actor said, "Every time we choreograph something in India, it is very difficult because whenever we show it to somebody they say, 'Oh! Jackie Chan has done this before.' So, for us, it's a great honour for being acknowledged by the great jury members."
Jammwal is known to be one of the biggest action stars in India. Speaking about the award, the actor said, “In India, action films mostly cater to male audience but our film was tailored for families. I think that that resonated with the jury. I want to thank my producers Vineet Jain and Priti Shahani for putting India on the global action map with this film" after the film won the family film honour.
