Mumbai | Mad Max: Fury Road actor Nathan Jones is making his Bollywood debut with Remo D’Souza’s next A 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, Remo said.
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.
The film, slated to release in August, will see Tiger and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles. Asked about the unusual pairing, Remo said, I wanted a very innocent looking guy to play this superhero. Tiger suits perfectly for the character. Similarly, Jacqueline also poses a very innocent and sexy look at the same time.
The choreographer is gearing up for the second season of reality show Dance Plus. Remo is returning as the superjudge of the Star Plus show. It is going to be more tough this time. People will winess many new dance forms and some extraordinary dancers across the country, he said.
