Tiger Shroff Trained 18 Hours A Day With Michael Jackson's Dance Troupe. 13-07-'17

Munna Michael
'Munna Michael' is a special film for Tiger Shroff.

'Munna Michael' is a special film for Tiger Shroff, who considers it his tribute to Michael Jackson. The actor, who is known for his swift moves on the dance floor, left no stone unturned in perfecting MJ's style of dancing for the film. Shroff can be seen recreating MJ's iconic moves in the recently released song, Beparwah.

Talking about the gruelling practice sessions that Shroff endured, director Sabbir Khan says, "Tiger attended a dance camp in the US. Not just that, dancers were brought in from Los Angeles. They practised with him for about 18 hours every day. Many of these dancers have accompanied MJ on his tours and danced with him. We used them in a few sequences in the film as well. Off work, they shared anecdotes on MJ's personal style, his gimmicks, et al."

Tiger Shroff has often expressed his admiration for the King of Pop and his passion for the dancing legend was evident during 'Munna Michael' shoot as well. Khan says, "He got emotional every time one of MJ's tunes was played."

In fact, it was Tiger who pushed Khan to direct the dance drama. "We were shooting a promotional number for Heropanti (2014), when I happened to discuss the idea of Munna Michael with Tiger. It was forgotten after that. In June last year, he called me saying, 'Why don't we make that film?'" recalls Khan.

The filmmaker, who is collaborating with Shroff for the third time, after Heropanti and Baaghi (2016), says he has never seen him as invested in a project. "He was bummed out after 'A Flying Jatt' (2016) didn't work, but he didn't let that dampen his spirits. He used the dejection and failure to make this a wonderful film."

The film will be in the cinema on July 21, watch the trailer of 'Mumma Michael' below:

Iron Maiden’s ‘The Trooper’ Meets Michael Jackson’s 'Beat It' in Seamless Mashup. 18-06-'17

This might be the greatest pop-meets-metal mashup we’ve ever heard. In this Best of YouTube clip, we revisit an incredible mix between Iron Maiden’s 'The Trooper' and Michael Jackson’s 'Beat It'.

YouTuber Nightmare Lyra has created a bunch of mashups, but 'Beat It, Trooper' is by far the most popular with over 370,000 views… which is still not nearly enough for something as good as this. In fact, it’s the only Nightmare Lyra mashup that’s surpassed 4,000 views, so you know this clip is the chosen one.

'Beat It, Trooper' begins with Iron Maiden’s iconic 'Trooper' riff, but before a vocal line even begins, the secondary guitar riff from 'Beat It' adds an extra layer to the Maiden classic almost seamlessly. Instead of Bruce Dickinson’s operatic voice singing the horrors of warfare, we get MJ’s famous lines as Maiden’s instrumental section drops out in the verse’s opening measures.

It’s eerie how well it all comes together, even without Dickinson’s woahs in the mix. In place of Maiden’s most powerful chant, Michael Jackson roars in with Beat it, beat it, no one wants to be defeated.” For a little added depth, samples from Anthrax’s 'Caught In A Mosh', Billy Idol’s 'White Wedding' and Judas Priest’s 'Painkiller', but you’d hardly notice.
