The young superhero Tiger Shroff appreciates the patriotism of ‘our soldiers who brave bullets at the border’.
They are the real superhero says Tiger who plays the lead role in ‘A Flying Jatt’ as a celluloid superhero.
“I have tremendous respect for the Indian army. Their discipline and physical fitness is awe–inspiring. The soldiers are the real heroes of our country. If I ever get to do a film like ‘Border‘, it will be the role of a lifetime for me,” said the youngest superhero of Bollywood.
Asked whether Bollywood is not making as many patriotic films as before he said that a lot of films that are made today are patriotic. “Maybe our understanding of patriotism is uni–dimensional. For instance, when I saw Varun Dhawan waving the National flag during the climax of ‘ABCD2′, I had tears in my eyes. It wasn‘t an overwhelmingly patriotic film but the Indian youth does get moved by such scenes”.
Replying to a question whether there is a disparity between reel and real patriotism he says “The feeling is subjective, but it stems from the pride of being an Indian. Whether people connect with it through cinema, sports or music, one can‘t deny it. When India wins the Cricket World Cup or our athletes make us proud at the Olympics, we beam with joy. That emotion is inherently there in every Indian. We don‘t need a movie to reinstate the feeling of patriotism”. – CINEWS
