Mumbai: Father and son, Jackie and Tiger Shroff, recently made an appearance together on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee with Karan, and showed just how close they were. Now, Shroff Jr. is all set to pay tribute to his father in his next, Munna Michael.
The actor recently shot for a song, Dhing Dhang, where he’s dressed like his father was in his debut film Hero, with a red bandana and a checked shirt. He is seen dancing along with his co-star, debutante Niddhi Agerwal, in the song. His director Sabbir Khan also went gaga over his actor by tweeting that only Tiger could have pulled off that “killer one shot”.
Incidentally, the story of Munna Michael is quite similar to Jackie Shroff’s life. Tiger’s character is seen growing up in the slums of Mumbai before becoming a popular dance star like Michael Jackson, just like his father was brought up in a chawl before he went on become a successful actor.
Tiger has also reportedly been shooting in Teen Batti chawl in Mumbai, where Jackie was brought up. Munna Michael is gearing up for release on July 7 this year.
