“Dance and action are very close to my heart because I use to do martial arts before dance. I am a huge fan of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. They are my favourite action heroes,” Remo told IANS here.
The choreographer, who will be seen as the super-judge of the second season of dance-based reality show “Dance +”, says the reason why he is making a film on a superhero is because he wants to try his hand at “different kinds of films”.
“I always wanted to do different kind of films. That’s why my first film ‘F.A.L.T.U’ was not on dance but on college education. Then I made two films on dance… After that a film on action (‘A Flying Jatt’),” he said.
“A Flying Jatt” stars Tiger Shroff, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nathan Jones.
