In his last couple of movies, Remo D’Souza worked with some of the best dancing talent that the country has produced. Right from Prabhudheva and Varun Dhawan to Lauren Gottlieb and Shraddha Kapoor to Salman Yusuff Khan and Dharmesh Yelande, each one of them has been superlative in ABCD – Any Body Can Dance and the film’s sequel.
Now he is taking an altogether different route with A Flying Jatt which is finding a course of its own.
“Of course, dance remains an integral element of the film, considering the expectations that one has from choreographer turned director. Moreover, with Tiger Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez in there, one indeed expects them to ‘shake’ their ‘booty’ on the ‘beat’,” says an insider, “However, there is a lot more than just that. With Tiger playing a superhero in the film, it is indeed with a difference. Instead of turning all fast, furious and ferocious in his endeavor to save and change the world, Tiger is being presented as one of the most loveable superheroes that any industry has ever seen – be it in Bollywood or Hollywood.”
While Hollywood has quite a few superheroes to its name and Bollywood has a handful to its credits as well, there has seldom been a superhero who has a child-like charm to him, is reprimanded by his family when need be, and doesn’t take himself too seriously.
“A lot of this also has to do with the charming personality that Tiger is,” says a close associate, “The young actor is rooted to the ground and that shows in his personality as well. In fact it is this very personal trait that truly impressed Remo D’Souza and he was sure that Tiger would get it absolutely right as a Sikh youth who has superpowers to boast of but doesn’t let go of his inherent charm, innocence and child-like persona.”
Well, considering the fact that his dancing stars have always stood out, one expects nothing lesser from the most loveable superhero that Remo D’Souza has to offer for Ekta Kapoor’s A Flying Jatt which releases all over this Friday, 26th August.
