A Flying Jatt: Tiger Shroff says that using cables for stunts is an art in itself

Whether it's Heropanti, Baaghi, or now A Flying Jatt, actor Tiger Shroff has showed terrific action in all of his films.

With A Flying Jatt though, Tiger says that he has used cables for the first time while performing stunts in a film. During the promotion of the film in Mumbai, Tiger said:

"'A Flying Jatt' is my most challenging film and I am very happy that Remo (D'Souza) sir has given me this challenge and that he let me become his superhero. There was a lot of preparation for the action and the character. We are trying to show a different kind of action and this is the first time I have used cable work. I used to think that 'I can do stunts, I don't need to do cables'."

He added:

"But when I actually used some cables for the first time, I realised that it is an art in itself. It is very difficult to maintain one's body language on cables, so it is not easy being a superhero," Tiger said at the launch of the song Beat Pe Booty.

Directed by Remo D Souza, A Flying Jatt will see Tiger in the role of a superhero who deals with several weaknesses which create comical moments.

"I have done action in my past two films and here I got the chance to tap into some humorous action. So that is a very difficult genre to express. But thanks to my director, who was very clear, and who told me exactly what I needed to do... That made my job easier. Hats off to legends like Jackie Chan, who make it all look so easy."

Tiger takes on Mad Max: Fury Road villain Nathan Jones in some intense action sequences in the film.

Of that, he said: "Whenever I used to fight with Nathan Jones, it used to be very difficult for me, but an experience."

Also featuring Jacqueline Fernandez and Amrita Singh, A Flying Jatt, is slated to release on 25 August.
