Choreographer-director Remo D’Souza says the movie “A Flying Jatt” is a risk but one that’s worth taking and adds that he would not be worried even if the film fails at the box office. In the movie, a superhero (Tiger Shroff) is shown as an ordinary man, who is even scared of heights.
“If you don’t take a risk you will not be satisfied and happy. I think one must look at creating history. I am glad I tried something different with ‘A Flying Jatt’. I will be okay even if I failed with this film,” Remo said.
“Ours is a small film. The producers gave us a proper budget, they gave us everything that we required. The most challenging part for this film was getting proper action scenes,” the director added.
The 44-year-old “ABCD” helmer feels like Hollywood, even Indian filmmakers can make superhero films packed with great amount of action and visual effects or VFX.
“The perception that ‘Indians can’t make superhero films’ needs to change. We can make superhero films in the budgets given to us. In our film, we have a better story, we had VFX etc”.
“We can pull it off in a different way. I wanted to make an unusual superhero film for quite sometime. Even before I started my debut film, this idea had come to me. I am glad the film has been made and will release soon.”
The film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, professional wrestler Nathan Jones in lead roles.
Remo says people will get to see ‘never seen before’ action in the film.
Both Tiger and Nathan are good in action. Nathan looks big and tall but he is agile… he is too good at action.”
Earlier lead actor Tiger Shroff has said for the first time in his career he performed stunts with the help of cables.
Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, A Flying Jatt opens in theatres on August 25. – CINEWS
