Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar is excited about his forthcoming directing Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, starring action stars Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff in the lead roles.
Speaking to Pinkvilla about the film and its handling of action in it, the director said: “The idea is to show different styles of action on the screen with two action stars from Indian cinema. I would make my film a climax of action. , drama and comedy. The idea is to celebrate both of these action stars with a topic that is very relevant and contemporary in today’s time. It has nothing to do with the old movie, but there’s a reason why it’s Bade Miyan Chote Miyan is called. There is a very interesting twist in the film, which is perhaps an ode to the old Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.”
Ali Abbas Zafar also opened up about making a movie with two heroes and said Bade Miyan Chote Miyan will remind audiences of the kind of movies they saw in the 80s.
“War was Hrithik v/s Tiger, and here they are together and not against each other. It’s a very different space. It’s in the zone of cinema we saw in the 80’s – when Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna and Dharmendra came together. Or even Karan Arjun for that matter. It’s a two-hero film, a buddy film,” the director concluded.
Bade Miyan The recordings of Chote Miyan will start from January next year. The makers plan to release the film in December 2023.
