Actor-producer Jackky Bhagnani whose film `Bade Miyaan Chote Miyaan` will see Malayalam superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran giving a new twist to the story, recently opened up on the decision to cast Prithviraj for the part.
He said, “We completely believe in inclusive cinema and Prithiviraj adds a lot of credibility to the film. He represents the Southern film industry in a big way and with him coming on board, it makes `Bade Miyaan Chote Miyaan`, a bilingual film in the true sense.” “I think the audience will really enjoy Akshay Sir, Tiger, and Prithviraj`s combination together under the direction of Ali Abbas Zafar,” he added.
Earlier in an interview, `Bade Miyaan Chote Miyaan`s producer Vashu Bhagnani said, “It`s a film very close to my heart as it brought together two legends Amit ji and Govinda and was directed by my favourite Davidji. It is heartening to see my Chote Miyan Jackky recreate that magic along with Ali Abbas Zafar who has a brilliant vision for the film. I am so humbled to have Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff be our Bade Miyan and Chote Miyan for a new generation of audiences in 2023.”
Apart from directing the film `Bade Miyaan Chote Miyaan`, Zafar has also written the film and will produce it along with Vashu, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani, and Himanshu Kishan Mehra. `Bade Miyan Chote Miyan` is set to release in five languages – Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam on Christmas 2023. Other than this film, Jackky Bhagnani is currently busy bankrolling `Ganapath` starring Tiger Shroff.
