New Delhi: Actor Tiger Shroff, who is awaiting the release of his film Baaghi, says he is keen to work in the remake of the 1989 film Parinda starring his father Jackie Shroff.

Asked if he would like to star in a remake of his father's film, Tiger told IANS: "I would like to work in the remake of my father's film Parinda".

The one-film-old star shared that he likes all films starring Jackie, but Parinda is "close to his heart".

"Although I like all his films, Parinda is really close to my heart," Tiger said.

Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Parinda, a crime drama film, also featured actors Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit in lead roles.

On the work front, Tiger will be seen in filmmaker-choreographer Remo D'souza's A Flying Jatt, which also features actress Jacqueline Fernandez.

Incidentally, when Tiger made his Bollywood debut with Heropanti, the film was pitted against Hero — starring newcomers Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. Despite the similarities in name (and theme) it was Hero that was a remake of Jackie Shroff's blockbuster film.

Parinda — counted among the 100 greatest Indian films of all time — has been "remade" by Vidhu Vinod Chopra as a Hollywood movie called Broken Horses.
