Vastavam web: Boollywood filmmaker Sabbir Khan, who has teamed up with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for “Munna Michael”, says the best part about the actor is that he doesn’t have a know-it-all attitude despite being a very good performer.”He’s a director’s actor. I’ve never found a more neutral person. He comes with completely neutrality on sets. He waits for you to say what you want and he will do that. He is such a delight to work with,” Sabbir told PTI.
The film chronicles the story of a young man from the streets, called Munna, played by Tiger Shroff, who is a big fan of Michael Jackson. Munna then gives dance lessons to Mahinder Fauji, played by Nawazuddin, who is a gangster.”The beauty of Nawazuddin is that he doesn’t interfere with the film. We had a complete bound script and both Tiger and Nawazuddin did workshops. We set the tone of how both the characters will act, so there was very little room on sets to make changes.” While this is his third film with Tiger after hits like “Heropanti” and “Baaghi”, Sabbir says convincing Nawazuddin for the film wasn’t difficult at all.
“Fortunately, even before I finished the script, he got up and said ‘I am doing this film’. We had coffee and sat down and after ten minutes I told him that he would have to dance in the film. He smiled and said he knew it.” Sabbir says though he agreed to dance, Nawazuddin was still initially hesitant.
