Tiger Shroff has been popular for his dancing skills right from his first film. The actor has displayed impressive moves and forms, notably in songs such as ‘Whistle baja’ (Heropanti; 2014), ‘Let’s talk about love’ (Baaghi; 2016), and ‘Beat pe booty’ (A Flying Jatt; 2016). So, in the wake of International Dance Day (April 29), HT Café caught up with the young actor for a quick tête-à-tête on dancing and his love of the art.

Hrithik Roshan and Varun Dhawan.
Name one Bollywood actress whose dance skills you admire.
Katrina Kaif. She is very hard working.
Who do you look up to?
Without a doubt, Michael Jackson.
Which international dancer would you like to collaborate with?
Chris Brown. I’m a big fan of his.
Any tips for young and aspiring artistes?
I think if you practice anything, the more you do something, the better you get at it. It is all about taking time and going through the same routine again and again, even if it gets monotonous. There are not many people who are willing to do the same routine over and over again. But consistency is key. So if you can manage that, then anything is possible.
The actor will next be seen in Munna Michael and Student Of The Year 2.
