A news portal claimed that Akshay took a 50 percent cut in drama while Tiger cut his fee by 20 percent. Condemning the buzz, producer Jackie Bhagnani confirmed, “Absolutely false!! Source-The Producer (I’m sure I’m trustworthy) get ready for this action-packed blast that was always on track.” Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bade Mian Chhote Mian is produced by Pooja Entertainment.
Akshay Kumar’s last release ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ barely made a splash at the box office, while Tiger was last seen in ‘Heropanti 2’, which earned just Rs 24 crore. Apart from Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan, Akshay Kumar will be seen in Mission Cinderella, Raksha Bandhan, Gorkha, Capsule Gill, Ram Sethu and Selfie. Tiger Shroff has a strong line up of action entertainers like ‘Ganapath’ and ‘Screw Dhila’ in the pipeline.
