Vidyut Jammwal said, “Starting from Kerala, by funding and supporting the Gurus of Kalaripayattu and Kalaris (schools) financially is only the first step. I have bigger plans for Kalaripayattu and it’s traditional as well as modern practitioners in near future.”

The academy endeavours to mentor kids learning the ancient discipline of Kalaripayattu. A young student named Neelakandan of the academy, took to Twitter to express his gratitude to the ‘Khuda Haafiz’ actor Vidyut Jammwal.

The young martial artist said: “Extremely grateful and honored! Met @VidyutJammwal in Mumbai and he has supported Ekaveera Kalaripayattu academy with a huge contribution of 5 lakh rupees. This will go a long way in helping us achieve our dream of promoting Kalaripayattu across India.”

Popularly known as Prince of Kalaripayattu, Neelakandan has shown incredible skills, nailed challenging physical feats and has earned the status of a social media star. Hailing Vidyut Jammwal as his idol, the young martial artist impressed our very own country boy.

Promising that he has bigger plans for Kalaripayattu and that he will help anyone promoting the ancient discipline, Vidyut congratulated Neelakandan and his father who runs the said academy.

The actor gifted him an ‘I Train Like Vidyut Jammwal’ customised T-shirt.

Meeting his role model was a dream come true for the boy, who tweeted: “One of the biggest moments of my life! Met Vidyut Jamwal and received this T Shirt from him. Also, had the good fortune of being able to perform a few Kalaripayattu moves with him. Dream fulfilled!”

His father, Mahesh Kumar R, said: “Neelakandan has been saying that he wants to meet Vidyut sir and wants to be as big as him. We got the opportunity to meet him today. He gave him ‘I Train Like Vidyut Jammwal’ T-shirt.

“He donated Rs 5 lakhs towards our academy and we believe it is only Vidyut Jammwal who can make Kalaripayattu a global brand that it is today. The largesse will be used to promote Kalaripayattu.”
