We know him as a great actor, but now he will be killing it on the dance floor along with Tiger Shroff in Munna Michael. Nawazuddin Siddiqui will start taking dancing lessons soon in preparation for this new challenge. Shooting of the film will start in September.
The film´s director, Sabbir Khan regards Nawazuddin as a great actor and believes this role will be challenging for him. “You will see him dance in the film. No one has seen him dance before. He is a phenomenal actor and that is why you need to challenge him and give him a role which is interesting,” Sabbir said. This is the first time Nawazuddin will team with director Sabbir.
Actor Tiger Shroff plays the starring role in this romantic-musical film that tells the story of a boy from the street who idolizes Michael Jackson. Regarding Nawazuddin’s character, the director has said, “It is not a negative role. It has got shades of white, black, grey and everything. All I can say right now is that it is a very layered character which he will be playing.”
Producer Viki Rajani has said the role is perfect for the 42-year-old method actor. Nawaz went on Twitter to express his excitement with the film. “Happy to be roped in for the talented @sabbir24x7 Munna Michael. It´s really a Wonderful Script and will enjoy working on it soon,” he wrote on the social network.

He absolutely loved the part,” director Sabbir said. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is currently waiting for the release of his films “Ali” and Babumoshai Bandokbaaz.
