Remo D’Souza said that he wrote the story of an innocent superhero in A Flying Jatt even before he made his debut as a director in 2011.
“I had written this script long back. I had this script even before I started directing. So, this was my first script,” Remo told reporters at the trailer launch of A Flying Jatt in Mumbai.
Remo made his debut as a director with F.A.L.T.U in 2011. He wanted his superhero to be innocent and felt actor Tiger Shrift would fit into that role.
“I wanted a superhero, who is innocent, adorable and someone who is just like us (common man). Someone who has powers but doesn’t know how to use it. I wanted an innocent face but when he does action, he should look like a superhero. And who is better than Tiger Shroff,” Remo said.
In the film, Tiger plays a Sikh superhero. Remo revealed that he has shown the strength and importance of a turban through Tiger’s character.
“It’s not just the story of a superhero but also about a boy finding out his identity of being a Sikh,” said Remo. Surprisingly, Tiger, who plays the superhero in the film, is scared of heights.
Shroff was born as Jai Hemant Shroff on 2 March 1990 to Indian film actor Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff (née Dutt). – CINEWS
