Tiger Shroff, who is a self- confessed fan of Michael Jackson, says he would like to play the King of Pop in a film.
“Biopics are interesting I would love to do one. I would like to do one on Michael Jackson,” Tiger told PTI.
The actor is grateful to have got an opportunity to pay tribute to his idol through his film “Munna Michael.”
Speaking about his fondest memories of Michael Jackson, the actor says, “I was very young then, so I did not understand what was going on at the concert (in Mumbai in 1996). I was four or five years old. I couldn’t see the stage but my father picked me up and then I could see him performing in front of me.
“I was amazed with his presence. And I knew I wanted to be like that, I wanted that craze and wanted to stand like him and sing like him,” the actor says.
It is not just Jackson’s dancing skills that Tiger is mesmerized with, he says he is equally amazed with his charity work.
“With great power comes great responsibility. The amount of work he has done for environment and the charity work…
It’s great,” he says.
