Only trying to glorify Punjabi community in Flying Jatt: Tiger 


Actor Tiger Shroff says his upcoming film “A Flying Jatt” is meant to glorify the Punjabi community and it has nothing against the people of Punjab. The 26-year-old “Baaghi” star says through the film they are only trying to present a “desi superhero” to the public.

When asked why the protagonist in the film is a Jatt, Tiger said, “It was Remo (D’Souza) sir’s idea to present a desi superhero and we are anyway glorifying the Punjabi community and not showing them in bad light. “We are trying to give India a desi superhero and we should be proud of it,” Tiger said, reports PTI.

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. “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. “So, we really cannot show drugs, sex or anything like that because that is too violent for children. It is a very clean film with a clean message.”

“A Flying Jatt” will mark Hollywood star Nathan Jones’ debut in Bollywood. He has worked in the 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 the comedy genre 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. “It was very hard for me and something very new at the same time. I am experimenting and I’m happy about it.”
