Mumbai: Actor Tiger Shroff has filmed a song for Sabbir Khan's directorial Munna Michael, and he says it is a tribute to his father and film industry veteran Jackie Shroff.
"The song is a tribute to my father. There is no better way I could have done it than as 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.
"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," Khan said.
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.
