Tiger Shroff has many idols. And like a true fan, he makes his devotion known. On Michael Jackson’s 60th birth anniversary, Tiger shared a special tribute dance video on Instagram.

In the video, Tiger can be seen dancing to Jackson’s iconic number, Beat It. Tiger can be seen trying to emulate the King of Pop not just with his moves but also with his attire - he’s wearing a white jacket-pant combo, paired with a hat reminiscent of the one Jackson used to wear.


He captioned the video, “Happy birthday to the reason i do what i do.” Tiger’s fandom towards MJ is well known - just like his love for Sylvester Stallone and Hrithik Roshan. One of his recent movies was partially named after the legendary singer. Although Munna Michael flopped, it was another way for Tiger to pay his respects to the late singer.

The singer would have turned 60 today. He still remains the world’s highest earning dead celebrity. In 2016, Jackson’s earnings were over $800 million - the highest annual total for any entertainer ever, dead or alive. He also rakes in millions through his Cirque Du Soleil show in Las Vegas and his publishing catalogue, which also features hits by other musicians.

Meanwhile, Tiger most recently appeared in Baaghi 2, which was partially a homage to Stallone’s Rambo series - Tiger also has a planned Indian remake of Rambo on the docket. He will next be seen opposite another of his idols, Hrithik Roshan, in a dance-action film from Yash Raj Films.
