Tiger Shroff who has been filming Sabbir Khan’s musical romance, Munna Michael, started shooting the song “Beparwah Joomega” on Wednesday. It is a tribute to his childhood idol Michael Jackson and will be picturised on a set in Mumbai’s Film City over the next 10 days. Tiger will recreate MJ’s iconic moves, including the moonwalk, in a concert sequence.
Tiger told Mirror, “It’s our finale song and since the film is a musical, it’s being shot on a lavish scale and has a huge graph. The audience will see different styles of dancing. The highlight will be the portion in which I pay a tribute to Michael Jackson. I’ve never moved like this in my life and this is definitely the most challenging song I’ve done to date. You’ll see steps you haven’t seen before, it’s all very authentic Michael Jackson, other than a fusion of hip-hop, popping and locking.”
He is performing in front of an exuberant 5000-strong crowd as he tries to recreate the euphoria, energy and ambience at the late pop icon’s concerts. “We have choreographers from Los Angeles who actually toured with MJ to design the song for us. Tiger and I have been having sleepless nights co-ordinating with them because of the time difference. We are shooting the song like a live show without too many cuts so the dancing is clearly showcased. Tiger and his back-up dancers have been getting standing ovations from the crowd,” exults Sabbir. Producer Viki Rajani is equally excited as they’re going beyond everything they’ve done so far in the film. “It’s our biggest set, the biggest set in Film City, and has the feel of a stadium. The crew was doing technical rehearsals on the set for a week before we started shooting.” The film is set to release on July 21, 2016.
