The trailer of Eros International's and Viki Rajani's Munna Michael was launched earlier this week and today, the first song 'Main Hoon' composed by Tanishk Baagchi was released. Starring Tiger Shroff as the titular character, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and newcomer Nidhhi Agerwal, Munna Michael seems to be a dance film with a bit of comedy thrown in.

The first track, 'Main Hoon', is sung by Siddharth Mahadevan, son of Shankar Mahadevan, and is set in a nightclub — the perfect place for Shroff's character to show off those amazing dancing skills in front of a large crowd.

Dressed in black pants, a white shirt and tank top with a black fedora — the signature Michael Jackson look from the song 'Black or White' — Shroff lets loose on the dance floor. His quick, cool moves are choreographed by Ganesh Acharya with a trademark Jackson step coming in, now and then.

Shroff shared the song on Twitter, writing: "Don't think I've ever been pushed to such limits before. But worth the experience." He has worked hard on the song's steps and it shows in his execution.

The dance anthem 'Main Hoon' is penned by lyricist Kumaar, while the tune is composed by Baagchi, who has been in the news quite a bit for his remixes of older Hindi songs. It's good to see his name next to an original number.

There's no sign of Siddiqui's gangster or Agerwal's starlet as yet in this song. Munna Michael is due to be released on 21 July. Watch the song here.
