After ‘Heropanti’, Tiger Shroff is a hero in demand thanks to his happy feet and karate chops. Filmmakers are queuing up outside his Bandra apartment and one of them is choreographer-turned-director Remo D’Souza who is keen to snap Jackie’s cub for a film he’s planning post the ABCD sequel.
According to a source, “Remo has approached Tiger for a film which will be big on martial arts and dance. It’s along the lines of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Remo believes that Tiger is a perfect fit for it.”
He has approached the rising star who has so far only given the nod to mentor-producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s next film opposite Shraddha Kapoor which will once again be directed by Shabir Khan. “He’s focussed on that film for the moment and is all set to fly off to Los Angeles for three months to train before the film rolls. Remo is prepared to wait for him and is also waiting to give a narration to Sajid post the release of ‘Kick’ because he wants him to back the film.” Remo admitted that he has been talking to Tiger. “He is a good dancer but this film that I have in mind for him will be an action film. But nothing has been confirmed yet,” he says.
There was another action-packed racing film, along the lines of ‘Fast And Furious’, about two brothers and cars which was to go on the floors in September with Sidharth Malhotra in the lead. According to Sidharth, this film is not happening. “The project is on,” asserts Remo. “But Karan (Johar) will decide when it’ll roll since he will be producing it.”
