According to a report in a news portal, Ali Abbas Zafar and his creative team are planning to mount the film as one of the biggest action thrillers in Bollywood. The production cost for ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ will reportedly be around Rs 120 crore, which is the highest ever for an Akshay Kumar film to date. The report also added that the director is working on the pre-production right now and the stunts are being designed keeping in mind the capabilities of Akshay and Tiger.
Reports are rife that the film is a remake of the 1999 original which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Govinda in lead roles. However, that’s not the case as Ali has written a completely new script, the source told Pinkvilla.
While the production cost is around Rs 120 crore, the two actors along with the director take away around Rs 200 to 210 crore as their respective fees. Taking into account the marketing cost, the total budget of the movie will be in the range of Rs 350 crore, which is among the highest ever for a Hindi film. A major chunk of the film will reportedly be shot in London.
