Australian power-lifting champ and actor Nathan Jones, previously seen as super villain Rictus Erectus in the Tom Hardy-starrer, Mad Max: Fury Road, is playing an antagonist in Remo D’Souza’s A Flying Jatt, featuring Tiger Shroff as a superhero.
His introduction scene filmed in the Jaisalmer desert over 10 days, has him emerging out of the sand dunes and exploding into action.
“He had to get in and out of a 30-foot pit and despite the morning chill and afternoon heat never complained,“ applauds Remo, adding that he sports a tattoo on his neck of a Hognose snake commonly found in America which is the muse for his character.
“We have taken inspiration from the characteristics of this reptile for Nathan’s role. He even learnt a few Hindi lines for the film.“
