Tiger Shroff is prepping up for his upcoming film, Munna Michael. While we already know that “Munna Michael” is special to Tiger because he is paying a tribute to Michael Jackson with this project but there is another reason why “Munna Michael” is close to the actor’s life.
And the reason is Tiger will pay a tribute to his father Jackie Shroff too. The actor, who has his martial arts and dance game strong, is seen donning a red check shirt and jeans similar to what Jaggu dada wore in his debut venture Hero. He is also wearing a bandana giving it a full street-smart stylish look.
“The song is a tribute to my father (Jackie Shroff). There is no better way I could have done it than as his Munna. Dad is my buddy, my first hero… He’s the reason I’m here. That’s why for this character I’m trying to live his life”, Tiger said in a statement.
Titled “Ding dang”, the song starring Tiger and debutante Nidhhi Agerwal, was shot on top of a bus in Film City here. It is choreographed by Ganesh Acharya.
What’s more interesting is the fact that the film will also see Nawazuddin Siddiqui matching some steps with the actor. Meanwhile, Tiger has begun the shooting of his next film, “Baaghi 2″.
“We styled Tiger in a manner similar to his father back in the day. The dance moves have also been designed keeping Jaggu dada in mind. Tiger somewhat looks like his dad from ‘Hero’. He has even spoken in that lukkha lingo and does it well,” Sabbir Khan said.
We all know how much Tiger respects his father and his journey to stardom. Their appearance on “Koffee With Karan” was a perfect glimpse of their relationship. Earlier, Tiger has admitted that he might never be able to portray Jaggu Dada if ever a biopic is made on him just because of the kind of story he has and the personality he carries.
Tiger’s mother Ayesha Shroff says that her son and her husband Jackie share personality traits and features.
“When I saw the Munna Michael song that he shot for last week, I was stunned. He has paid homage to Jackie and how! Tiger totally reminds me of Jackie from Hero, particularly the stubble, hairdo, his eyes and the clothes. It’s amazing how he’s pulled it off,” she said.
After wrapping up these two projects, Tiger would begin work with Karan Johar for the sequel of “Student Of The Year”.
