Tiger Shroff recently released a video to pay
. The video was a mash-up of the song Whistle Baja (from Tiger’s debut film) and Jackson’s hit number, Billie Jean.
The actor has now said he would love to play Michael Jackson if a biopic is ever made on the ­legendary singer. "It’s a toss-up between Bruce Lee and Jackson. These two are my heroes, and I would love to play either of them in a biopic. While I grew up watching Lee’s martial arts sequences in films, I have worshipped Jackson ever since I can remember. I would love to portray his life on screen — from the ’80s when he started getting ­famous till the time, I hate to say, he passed away in 2009," Tiger says.
About his tribute video for the king of pop, the 23-year-old further said, "Jackson has been my idol. He has been my favourite ever since I started learning dancing. So, for the tribute, I chose Whistle baja, a song that gave me so much ­recognition and love, along with Billie Jean."
More so because, "Billie Jean was the song in which Jackson ­performed his iconic ­moonwalk for the very first time in 1983," Tiger added.
