Ali Abbas Zafar directorial starring Tiger and Akshay to be made on 300 crore budget? FIND OUT

Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff are teaming up for the first time on a big-budget action comedy which is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. As per the reports of Pinkvilla, now we have come to know that, tentatively titled Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, is going to be among one of the costliest movies of Bollywood with an estimated budget of ₹300 crores.

A source close to the development revealed, “Ali Abbas Zafar has been wanting to make a 2-hero film for a while now, and he got supremely excited on getting this chance of directing two big action stars from different generations. On wrapping up Bloody Daddy with Shahid Kapoor, he will commence work on the pre-production of Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. He has a certain vision, and is planning to present both Akshay and Tiger in the most heroic possible way.”

The source went on to add and he told that Ali’s emotions are always rooted in reality, and he understands the aspects that excite the audience as far as the presentation of a story is concerned. While approx. 60% of the budget has gone into actor fees, over Rs 100 crore will be invested in mounting the film on a lavish scale.

The source added that “The Bhagnani’s have been planning to set up a big two-hero film with Akshay for a while now. They were toying around with multiple ideas and it’s finally Bade Miyan Chote Miyan that has been greenlit by Akshay Kumar.”

The film will go on floors by late 2022, early 2023 depending on the Covid-19 scenario and is at this point of time planned as a massive festive release in the second half of 2023. Contrary to the speculations, it is not the remake of Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, but an action-comedy centered around these two characters portrayed by Akshay and Tiger. “It’s more on the lines of Bad Boys than Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,” the source informed, adding further that action aside, comedy too will play a key role in this story.
