The trailer of Tiger Shroff’s third feature film Flying Jatt shows a turbaned Tiger slicing through the sky in search of God know what,and why.
Remo d’Souza’s super-hero flick tries to present Tiger in Hrithik’s mould.
Tiger however finds it hard to even accept being spoken of in the same breath as his idol. ‘No way! I can’t even begin to be compared with Hrithik Sir.He is the best. My Flying Jatt is Remo Sir’s attempt to do a different take on the super-hero genre.We cannot compare it with Krissh.”
What we cannot help comparing Tiger’s Flying Jatt with, is his own father Jackie Shroff’s super-hero film ShivaKa Insaaf.
Tiger exults, “That’s my all-time favourite film of my Dad! As a child I’ve watched it over and over again. Every son’s first hero is his father.My dad was my first super-hero. For me he was Superman and Batman combined.”
Shiva Ka Insaaf was the first 3D film in Hindi, and Tiger recalls the allure of watching his dad fly across the sky. “I loved to see my Dad play the desi super-hero,My father didn’t have to try to be a super-hero. It came naturally to him. He was tall well-built and his body-language rendered itself effortlessly to the super-hero mould. I had to work hard to get into the super-hero mould.I hope I’m not compared with my father or withHrithik Sir.”
