The report also claims that Akshay is receiving Rs. 144 crore, Tiger Rs. 45 crores and the film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar is reportedly receiving Rs.45 crores. 25 crores for the film.

“While Akshay has cut his fees by 50 per cent and entered into a hybrid model of profit sharing and upfront fee working, Tiger and Ali have also reduced their remuneration by 20 to 35 per cent. Around Rs. The overall shortfall is .100 crore from 3 talents and that makes the film a viable project,” claimed sources.

According to a report by Pinkvilla, Bade Mian Chhote Mian is one of the most expensive action thriller films of next year with a total budget of Rs 300 crore. Big Mian Chhote Mian will be shot in London.
