Tiger Shroff is about to pull out all the dance strings in his forthcoming ‘Munna Michael’ where he will be emulating many of the same moves as the late great Michael Jackson. News has it that it was Shroff who prompted directed Sabbir Khan to make the film in the first place.
“We were shooting a promotional number for Heropanti (2014), when I happened to discuss the idea of Munna Michael with Tiger. It was forgotten after that. In June last year, he called me saying, ‘Why don’t we make that film?” Mid-Day reports Khan expressing.
Though the young actor has proven his dancing time and time again, it seems this film was the one where he really had to pull out all the stops. Talking about Shroff’s vigorous training, Khan went on to say, “Tiger attended a dance camp in the US. Not just that, dancers were brought in from Los Angeles. They practised with him for about 18 hours every day. Many of these dancers have accompanied MJ on his tours and danced with him. We used them in a few sequences in the film as well. Off work, they shared anecdotes on MJ’s personal style, his gimmicks, et al.”
Also starring, Niddhi Agerwal, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Ronit Roy, ‘Munna Michael’ is set to hit the silver screens on 21st July.
