‘A Flying Jatt’ is most pro-Sikh community film ever: Ekta Kapoor
Mumbai, July 18 (IANS) “A Flying Jatt” is a pro-Sikh community film and care has been taken to ensure the content does not hurt anyone’s sentiments, says the movie’s producer Ekta Kapoor.
“From the script to the film, in each and every level of the film we have taken approvals and we have seen to it that no sentiments get hurt,” Ekta told the media here during the film’s trailer launch.
“In fact, it’s the most pro-Sikh community film ever. My mother herself before she introduced me to Ram and Sita, she introduced me to Babaji (Guru Nanak)… I will not show anything that’s against the Sikh community,” she added.
Directed by Remo D’Souza, “A Flying Jatt” features Tiger Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles.
Remo has also roped in Australian actor Nathan Jones for the movie, and says he always wanted a super-villain like him for “A Flying Jatt”.
“The character that I had for a superhero in mind was very innocent, and when he fights with someone, I wanted a super- villain whom one would see and feel, ‘How can anyone defeat him?’ When they stand together, look at the difference,” he said.
Tiger, who is playing the superhero in the film, says it was great to work with Jones.
“When it comes to action, it was a treat to work with him. He is very powerful, but he is also a thorough professional. He is also a wrestler, so he has control over his body language. None of us were injured while we were fighting,” he said.
