High off the buzz of promotions for the upcoming film ‘A Flying Jatt’, Jacqueline Fernandez has set her sights on becoming her own superhero in a movie of her own. In a period when girl power has dominated the movie world globally, no doubt many will be excited at the prospect.
‘A Flying Jatt,’ also stars Tiger Shroff and is directed by Remo D’Souza. ��This is Fernandez’s third movie of the year after ‘Dishoom’ (2016) and ‘Housefull 3 (2016).’ Regarding the idea of a female Bollywood superhero, Fernandez told PTI, “Hopefully, yes. I’ve already spoke to Remo about it. Now let’s hope and see, if Remo agrees and then we’ll go ahead.” The movie also sees Shroff in the lead role as a man who has superpowers.
So far, the movie has generated some positive feedback to Fernandez’s delight. “We have been getting a great response. First the trailer, and now songs. Being part of a project, where a new superhero is in town, it is amazing,” she says. “From the day Remo offered it to me, I was super excited, developing the character and working on it with such a fantastic team.”
D’Souza himself is no stranger to choreographed movies after having on his director CV, ‘ABCD’ (2013) and ‘ABCD 2’ (2015). Fernandez talks about the experience of working with D’Souza, “I am a huge fan of Remo. So being directed by him now has been really fun. He is a phenomenal director, with a team where all are dancers. It is daunting when you have to do a song with them but they are extremely supportive and helpful.”
‘A Flying Jatt’ is scheduled for release on 25th��August.
