Remo D’souza…Dropped the idea of making a 3D version.

The director of A Flying Jatt, Remo D’souza says he initially planned to make his super hero movie in 3D, but eventually dropped the idea and also decided to give the film a ‘desi’ twist without following the western characters.

Remo, 44, who previously directed the dance-based franchise “ABCD” in 3D, said since he was trying his hands in action for the first timehe  decided to leave the idea of using 3D. “I wanted to make it in 3D. Of course we all started out making (the film) with the thought that we will make this one in 3D. “But because this was a first time, I was touching action, I said I’ll make this one and then God willing, may be sequel will be in 3D,” he said.

The movie, releasing on August 25, stars Tiger Shroff in the lead role of a man with supernatural powers and features Jacqueline Fernandez as his love interest.

It is the fourth directorial venture of Remo, who previously helmed movies such as “Faltu” and two installments of “ABCD”. The choreographer-turned-filmmaker says “A Flying Jatt” is a superhero movie with a human touch.

“It is a different kind of a superhero movie. I have reversed everything which happens in a superhero film. It has comedy, problems faced by superhero, how costume is made. It is a human kind of a story,” he said. Remo said he wasn’t inspired by the super heroes of the West and has instead added a ‘desi’ twist to the film.

“From day one I knew I had to make a superhero movie and I wanted an Indian superhero. I didn’t want to copy a Hollywood character. If I have made a dance film of that level then I can make a superhero film too of that level,” he said.

“They (Hollywood) have big films, with big budgets. But we had the required budget for this film. So we have made it in a perfect way,” the director added. Produced under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures, the film also features professional wrestler Nathan Jones in a negative role. – CINEWS
