Roping Nathan for A Flying Jat wasn’t tough: Remo D’Souza
Mad Max: Fury Road actor Nathan Jones is making his Bollywood debut with Remo D’Souza’s next Flying Jat and the director says working with the former Australian wrestler was fun.
Jones, 48, is playing the main antagonist in Tiger Shroff-starrer superhero drama, which will wrap up its shooting this week in Chandigarh. “I spotted Nathan when I watched Mad Max: Fury Road last year. I wanted a strong and powerful villain opposite Tiger. Flying Jat is a superhero movie and the villain needs to be really strong. I mailed Nathan and he accepted my offer because he didn’t have any line-up during this time. So, he came onboard very easily,” said Remo.
The National-award winning choreographer said the Australian wrestler-turned-actor also enjoyed shooting for the Bollywood film.
“He was fun and moreover he also enjoyed shooting with us. He got along with every crew member.” Remo has made American dancer Lauren Gottlieb a household name in India, thanks to her stint in his ABCD franchise and dance reality shows. The choreographer-director hopes that Nathan will also have the similar fate here post A Flying Jat. “Our films have immense power and we have always accepted international artistes with open arms. If Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone can do wonders in Hollywood then they can also do it here.”
