In an exclusive interview, Vashu Bhagnani, producer of the upcoming action-comedy “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,” discusses the challenges and delights of revisiting the iconic 1998 film. Bhagnani, a longtime admirer of the original, decided it was time to bring the concept back to life with a modern twist for a new generation.

This iteration of “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” leans heavily on action sequences, a departure from the more comedic focus of the original. Bhagnani is particularly impressed by director Ali Abbas Zafar’s dedication to creating a realistic action experience through practical effects. Zafar’s tireless work ethic has even earned Bhagnani a newfound respect for the demanding role of a director.

While the film prioritizes action, Bhagnani assures fans that the humor isn’t lost. He describes the film’s comedic tone as “beautiful,” distinct from slapstick humor but still laugh-out-loud funny.

A key element of the film’s success hinges on the on-screen chemistry between Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff. Bhagnani is effusive in his praise, comparing their bond to that of brothers. The interview even includes a short clip showcasing this camaraderie between the two actors.

Another highlight is the casting of Prithviraj Sukumaran as the antagonist. Bhagnani remains tight-lipped about Sukumaran’s role, but teases that he will be a “surprise package” for audiences.

Bhagnani also sheds light on his initial hesitation about casting Tiger Shroff. His concerns stemmed from wanting to create a film alongside his son, Jackky Bhagnani, who is also involved in the production. However, upon witnessing the undeniable chemistry between Shroff and Kumar, Bhagnani’s doubts vanished entirely.

In addition to the star power of Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff, “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” boasts a fresh take with the inclusion of rising stars Alaya F and Jackky Bhagnani.

Alaya F brings her vivacious energy to the role. In a separate interview, F describes her character as “quirky, vibrant, and fierce,” a “cool girl” who is much more than just eye candy. She expresses her excitement about working alongside the film’s established stars and delves into the challenges and rewards of portraying a complex character.

Jackky Bhagnani, son of producer Vashu Bhagnani, takes on a role behind the scenes. In his interview, he discusses his experience working alongside his father Vashu Bhagnani and the unique challenges of being a producer for such a large-scale production. He reveals that the decision to cast Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff stemmed from a desire to create a high-octane action film with strong protagonists and antagonists, similar to Hollywood franchises. Jackky credits his father Vashu Bhagnani with the initial idea and reveals that Akshay Kumar was the first actor approached for the project.

With its blend of action, comedy, and a stellar cast, “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” promises to be a must-watch for fans of the original film and newcomers alike. The latest trailer for the film is now available online, offering a glimpse into the high-octane action and comedic moments audiences can expect.
