Dance drama Munna Michael featuring Tiger Shroff and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will take on Ashwini Iyer Tiwary’s multi-starrer Bareilly Ki Barfi at the box office on July 21. The former was supposed to hit screens on July 7, but has been postponed by a fortnight.

Munna Michael marks the third collaboration between Tiger and director Sabbir Khan after Heropanti (2014) and Baaghi (2016). It is about a die-hard Michael Jackson fan, Munna (Tiger), who is given a chance by Nawaz’s character to participate in a dance contest. Newcomer Niddhi Agerwal has been paired opposite Tiger in the film.

Bareilly Ki Barfi, on the other hand, is a quirky romantic comedy set in Bareilly. It stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles. Ayushmann reportedly plays the owner of a printing press, while Rajkummar would be seen as an author and Kriti as a footloose, liberated girl in the film.
