Shah Rukh Khan
No Record Found.
He is just two films old. And both have been superhits. As Tiger Shroff looks forward to the release of his third film this Friday, we spoke to him about A Flying Jatt and how he wants to tale his career forward.
A Flying Jatt is supposed to be a ‘different kind of superhero’ film. How so?
This film too has its own kind of action. It is a different kind of superhero. He is scared to use the powers that he has. Like he is scared to fly to high as he has vertigo. He is meek and not someone who can take on just about anyone. He is scared of his mother. I am scared of my mother too! The mother takes advantage of that fact that her son is a superhero. She makes him do household chores, shop for vegetables. She even asks the wear the superhero costume while going out for grocery shopping so that he gets discounts!
Do you do chores in real life?
Only my room!
What about running errands like grocery shopping?
Yes I used to go. Now I don’t have time so I don’t do it anymore. Now my mother takes care of my things.
You seem to be more inclined towards commercial and massy films. Is that how you wish to take your career forward?
I am lucky that much of my fan following is kid. And I keep them in mind when I choose my characters and films. They are the future of our country and I want to do very clean and noble characters so that I don’t provide them wrong influence. It is all for my kiddie fans.
Keeping your kid fan base in mind, what are the things you would not like to do in film?
I cannot really say it as it might look like I am putting down other actors who do such things. It is an individual choice. I would not like to do a character that is seen taking drugs, alcohol etc. At this moment I don’t think I will be able to do a dark film. I need to establish my individuality. Maybe I will try doing something different after next five films.
And how do you look at the critics who lash out on the films?
It is a good thing. Because that would mean I can grow as a performer with each film. I just hope that even the critics will appreciate A Flying Jatt. I am trying something new here. This is the first time I am experimenting with comedy and action. It is a difficult job.
You have so far managed to merge action and musical genre in your films.
There was an awareness even before my first film that I do not have acting experience. Yet if I wanted to be a hero I would need to do something different. I wanted to be accepted for my individuality. I decided that I don’t want people to say I got a break only because I am Jackie Shroff’s son. I deliberately took a route, doing films that allowed me to express my talent. The things I do, not many people can do. And automatically I derive an identity from that. I am thankful that I was aware that I am different.
You usually face a lot of injuries at sets. Any injuries during this?
Always. Especially with this film. You can imagine I was fighting with the huge Nathan Jones in this film. There were lot of contacts with him. We even had to pack up shoot for the day at times as he is really strong. If he punched lightly I would still get hurt as he is so heavy. But I must say, he is a fantastic person. I really got to learn a lot from him. He is such a professional! The way he used to react to my punches, his reactions, would make my look like an actual superhero.
What is your take on body doubles?
I don’t believe in body doubles. If a body double is standing in for me then I don’t deserve to take his credit. I am well trained and have labored to achieve this. I am confident of my skills and don’t need help.
It is official now. You will be a lead in Student Of The Year 2. Tell us more about it.
Kismet. I am just lucky than he chose me to play the part and to take the franchise ahead. I will try not to let Karan sir and the original students down. There are two new girls. I don’t have any other information on the film. They are still working on the script.
You have doing quite a few music videos. Any specific reason why you do them?
I think singles are a nice way to give your fan a treat between your films. I like to give my fans something that they like to see me doing. It is also a great PR exercise. It is better than doing an advertisement.
Do you mean you don’t like endorsements?
I am endorsing Hrithik Roshan’s brand HRX. I would say I like creativity. I rather show some talent on screen instead of posing for a photo.
Hrithik Roshan recently complimented you saying nobody does it like you.
Yes! It is so sweet of him. He is the original god of dance and he doing the short video makes me feel so good.
