Prithviraj Sukumaran

Prithviraj Sukumaran is currently experiencing a successful streak at the box office. Following the moderate success of Salaar, his latest Malayalam venture, “The GOAT Life,” has also crossed the 100-crore mark.

Additionally, he has garnered pan-India recognition due to the surge in OTT consumption during the pandemic.

Now, he is gearing up for the release of a massive pan-India film, “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,” with a whopping budget of 350 crores.

Starring Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff, and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film is slated for release tomorrow in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. In this action-packed thriller, Prithviraj takes on the role of the antagonist.

Despite extensive promotion by Prithviraj, the advance bookings for the film have been disappointing.

As of Tuesday night, only 13,000 tickets have been sold across the national multiplex chains, including PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis. Surprisingly, the numbers are even lower than those for the female-centric film, “Crew.”

The response is similarly underwhelming for the Tamil and Telugu versions, with ZERO tickets sold for the Malayalam version, according to trade websites.

Given Prithviraj Sukumaran’s stature as a big star in Malayalam cinema, this disastrous reception comes as a huge shock.

Prithviraj Sukumaran has also promoted the film in a big way but that hasn’t boosted the ticket sales even in Malayalam.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan is all set to open in the range of 12-13 crores net on a nig festival like Eid which would be no less than an embarrassment.
