The makers of the upcoming action thriller film ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ have brought Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff together for the first time in what can be dubbed one of the casting coups. The movie is now considered one of the most expensive Hindi films ever made.
According to a news outlet source, Ali Abbas Zafar and his creative team want to make the film one of Bollywood’s biggest action thrillers. ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ is expected to cost over Rs 120 crore to make, making it the most expensive Akshay Kumar film to date. The director is currently working on pre-production, and stunts are in the works, according to the article.
While the production costs are estimated to be approximately Rs 120 crore, the two actors and the director are paid between Rs 200 and 150 crore. The film’s entire budget, including marketing costs, is expected to be in the neighborhood of Rs 280-300 crore, making it one of the most expensive Hindi films ever. According to reports, a significant portion of the film will be shot in London.
While the news will undoubtedly excite fans, SRK’s Dunki will be pitted against Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff’s Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. Both movies will be released over the Christmas holiday weekend. After Pathan’s release in January of next year, Dunki will be SRK’s second film of 2023 and fans are super excited to watch his first collaboration with Rajkumar Hirani.
If Bade Miyan Chote Miyan overlaps with SRK’s film, how will it recoup its costs? It will be impossible to recoup these costs of this Akshay Kumar & Tiger Shroff starrer against a big SRK-Hirani film. Even recovering as a solo release is difficult, since Akshay Kumar’s last film, Bachcchan Paandey, failed to break the 45 crore nett mark at the box office.
