Actor Tiger Shroff says the lead role in his film is a Jatt because the filmmaker wanted to portray a “desi superhero.”
But why a Jatt as the protagonist?
Tiger says, “It was Remo (D’Souza) sir’s idea to present a desi superhero, but we are glorifying the Punjabi community and not showing them in bad light”.
Earlier the film had to be presented to a committee made up of Sikh leaders to see whether the community has been portrayed negatively and there were some comments on the use of a Sikh holy symbol.
Tiger says the film has nothing to do with drugs or other negative things and only focuses on the issue of pollution and environment conservation, issues crucial in the modern world.
“We are not focusing on drugs or anything negative in this film.. the only negative in this film is the issue of pollution. Apart from that Remo sir has made it keeping kids in his mind”.
“A Flying Jatt” will mark Hollywood star Nathan Jones’ debut in Bollywood. He has worked in films like “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “Fearless” and “Troy”.
Talking about Jones, Tiger says, “It was a flurry of emotions. I was petrified and excited. I am his fan, so there was a lot to learn from those experiences. Shooting with him was an experience of a lifetime.”
Tiger is working in a comedy for the first time and he says it was difficult but he finds himself lucky that Remo has given him the opportunity to explore a new side of him. – CINEWS
