Earlier, it was reported that Akshay Kumar will be a part of the "Commando 2" team, but behind the camera. Vipul had said that he would approach Akshay to give inputs on action sequences of the movie as the actor is considered to be one of the best action heroes in Bollywood.

"Akshay is the best action hero in the country. He was the most excited when we started 'Commando' with vidyut, and in fact, we would have liked Akshay to be more participative in 'Commando.' However, he was too busy. But now in 'Commando 2,' we definitely intend to bring Akshay in," the co-producer had told IANS.
