The hunt for a leading fresh female face opposite Tiger Shroff in his upcoming, Sabbir Khan directorial Munna Michael is over.

After auditioning many faces, the makers have selected a Bangalore girl, former miss Diva Universe -- Nidhhi Agerwal, to launch in Bollywood.

As per the script of the film, the makers were looking for a girl who is well versed with various forms of dancing and is a trained professional dancer. Nidhhi, as reported in the media, is a trained Kathak, ballet and belly dancer.

Nidhhi says that she always wanted to be an actor and is inspired by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In her own words:

"I've always wanted to be an actress. Every time I saw Aishwarya Rai on a hoarding I'd tell myself that my face would be up there one day."

Expressing her excitement after receiving the contract, Nidhhi said:

"When I finally had the contract, I flew to Bangalore with my team. They asked my dad to guess who I was being paired with. Dad is a karate champ and loves Tiger. He immediately took his name and was delighted to be told that he was right."

Talking about Sabbir Kha, she said:

"Sabbir sir has launched the careers of Tiger and Kriti Sanon with Heropanti and I knew I am in capable hands. The first time I met him, I was really nervous. He advised me to leave the pressure behind and focus on my training. Now, I'm raring to dance for the camera. It will be nerve-wracking to dance with Tiger, but I'm super-excited."

Munna Michael will portray a story of a young man from the streets of Teen Batti in Mumbai and his passion for dancing. Tiger Shroff has already started his training for the film.

Currently, the actor, whose last on screen outing -- Baaghi was a hit at the Box Office, is gearing up for the release of Remo D'Souza's A Flying Jatt with Jacqueline Fernandez.
