Someday an Indian ‘Avengers’ will be made: Tiger
Mumbai: Actor Tiger Shroff, who will be seen as a superhero in the forthcoming film “A Flying Jatt”, says some day an Indian version of the Hollywood blockbuster “The Avengers” will be made.
“In Hollywood, there is ‘Spider-Man’, ‘Superman’, ‘Captain America’ … And someday, an Indian ‘The Avengers’ film will be made because we have ‘Krrish’ and ‘Ra.One’ … Now, we have ‘A Flying Jatt’,” Tiger said.
“All the actors are really working hard. It’s just that we (Indian artistes) have limitations when it comes to budget and that’s the only difference. In fact, what we Bollywood actors do that they (Hollywood artistes) cannot do is … we dance, we sing, we fight and do a lot of things.
“I think our audiences are used to seeing a certain kind of cinema and someone like Remo D’souza (the film’s director) is trying to make something different. We have great talent here,” he added
D’souza shared: “We are trying our best to be at par with the West, but we do have budget issues. But yes, half of the special effects work is done here. It’s just that our perception of viewing films is different. Yes, we are all trying to bring a change.”
“A Flying Jatt” also features Jacqueline Fernandez.
Will it be difficult for the audience to accept this superhero?
D’souza said: “We all know our first superhero is Krrish and I am a huge fan of Krrish. Tiger is a huge fan of Hrithk Roshan (who played Krrish). We never thought that we were making a ‘Krrish’. We are making our film… and it’s a small film.”
He might be playing a superhero in his next, but for Tiger, his superhero will always be his father and actor Jackie Shroff.
Tiger said: “I think every kids’ superhero is their father, so for me, my father is my superhero.”
