For Australian actor Nathan Jones, mouthing dialogues in his debut Bollywood film, A Flaying
Jatt was an uphill task, though he enjoyed doing the action sequences.
The retired professional wrestler, who stands seven feet with an impressive built, plays the role of a super villain, Raka, in the Remo D’Souza-directed superhero film alongside Tiger Shorff and Jacqueline Fernandez.
“I haven’t been given too many dialogues to say in the past. I was a little nervous as sometimes makers change it at the last minute. So I would be surprised how did it change? I had practised a lot,” Nathan told PTI.
“But then they makers changed it a little bit here and there. It was hard to de-program. I used to fumble but then I got it. So those were the things that were difficult. Learning Hindi was bit difficult for me.”
The ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ star says since he has been a wrestler, he was at ease doing action sequences in the movie.
“I am comfortable with action because of my wrestling background. It is my forte. We used to rehearse it and I used to pick it up quickly. I feel if there is something that you practise and do again and again, it becomes easy.”
The 47-year-old actor reveals he was in Thailand when he got a call from the makers of ‘A Flying Jatt’ and what drew him to Bollywood was his role and the script.
“I like the idea of the film. I felt it was perfect for me and my career. It’s really utilising what I have (referring to his look). It is not just about senseless violence, it has great substance.”
Nathan feels that children are going to love the film. “The film is a complete family entertainer with a wonderful message. This film is for the kids and I am sure they are going to love it,” Nathan adds. ‘A Flying Jatt’ is set to open in theatres on August 25.
