The savage reviews of Remo d’Souza’s The Flying Jatt have not deterred its leading man. Remo and Tiger are already planning a second film in the series.
Says Tiger enthusiastically, “The kids love my Flying Jatt act.And the really heartwarming takeaway is that children are taking the Swachch Bharat message very seriously.I heard from a mother that her child woke up very early in the morning and told his mother to throw away all the garbage in and around the house , so that the film’s villainRaka doesn’t get a chance to get powerful.”
In A Flying Jatt the villain Raka feeds on trash as fuel.
Says Tiger emotionally, “Kids actually feel I can save the world. That was the most heartwarming response I got to all the hard work Remo Sir and I and the whole team put in.If the kids have got the message in the film then we’ve succeeded.”
Tiger attributes the slow start to A Flying Jatt at the turnstiles to the film’s unusual release date. “Half the people were not aware that the film released on Thursday rather than Friday because of Janmasthami. While we are happy to have come on the auspicious day many people didn’t even now the film was released a day before the norm.”
Tiger was theatre-hopping all of Friday and Saturday and he is pleased. “Our film has connected with the audience. I am happy.”
