Despite the towering personality of Akshay Kumar, recently released Samrat Prithviraj failed to show its magic at the box office. Consequently, the makers have put Akshay’s next venture ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ on hold. Besides Akshay, the movie stars Tiger Shroff.

Prithviraj halts Akshay’s next, makes producers postpone the movie

Although the news is heartbreaking for the Khiladi’s fans, producers cited budget constraints Budget constraints are the reasons cited behind the postponing of the movie, however, the fans speculate otherwise. Many fans view the failure of Akshay’s Prithviraj as the reason for the action. Fans’ assumption that Failure of Prithviraj makes producers rethink the cast is not baseless. With a budget of around 300 crores, the movie was nothing less than a high-end movie. Since the movie has been postponed the fans are upset. In February Vashu Bhagnani announced the sequel to the Amitabh-Govinda hit comedy released in 1998,” ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’.


A teaser of the movie was released at the time.
