He was speaking at the trailer launch of Munna Michael on Monday. “I won’t be able to play a dancing hero. But yes, I would love to play a hero in any film. I think Tiger and our whole team helped me to dance a little bit in the film. I think somehow I manage just 5 per cent of Tiger’s level,” Nawazuddin said.

Asked about his experience of working with Nawazuddin, Tiger said, “I think with every character, Nawaz bhai’s body language changes, and that is a sign of a good actor. I learnt a lot from him as an actor during the shooting of the film.”

The action dance movie’s female lead Nidhhi Agerwal is making her debut. She said: “I am very lucky to be a part of this film where I got a chance to work with Nawaz sir. He is a very down-to-earth person and patient on set. Matching up dance steps with Tiger was very tough, but I tried my best.”

Clarifying rumours that all is not well between him and the film’s director Sabbir Khan, Tiger said, “I think that was a PR stunt. I did my first film with him, and that time he was my guru, a mentor, and now he is like my brother.”

Sabbir also cleared a rumour of Shraddha Kapoor’s special number in the film, saying: “Not that I know of.”

Produced by Viki Rajani, Munna Michael is releasing on July 21.
