Watch: Akshay Kumar Tiger Shroff flag off L&T marathon from Atal Setu in Mumbai


In a spectacular morning spectacle, Bollywood heavyweights Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff initiated the commencement of the pioneering L&T Sea Bridge Marathon. The event, which took place on February 18, was set against the stunning backdrop of the Atal Setu Bridge in Mumbai, marking a new chapter in the city’s rich marathon history.

The marathon trail spanned a solid 5 kilometers, with the athletes’ feet pounding the stretch of the Atal Setu bridge, part of the illustrious Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL). The bridge, serving as a testament to modern infrastructure, provided participants with breathtaking views of the sea, effectively becoming the first marathon of its kind to be organized over such a setting. In deference to the event, vehicular traffic was halted on the bridge for the duration of the marathon, highlighting the city’s commitment to promote sports and fitness activities.

The beginning of the race was memorialized by a myriad of snaps and clips circulating on various social media platforms, with a notable image capturing the two actors energetically waving the marathon flag, signaling the runners to start. This magnanimous event was not just a test of endurance but also served as a symbolic gesture celebrating the spirit of Mumbai and the love for maritime vistas.

The scene of Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff together is not just limited to fitness events. The duo is also bracing for the release of their next big-screen venture ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,’ directed by the renowned filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar. With an anticipated release slated for Eid 2024, the film is tipped to be a trailblazer in cinemas across the nation, creating a palpable buzz well ahead of its release.

‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ has drawn upon a tapestry of global locales for its filming, including Mumbai, London, Abu Dhabi, Scotland, and Jordan. Setting a standard for cinematic excellence, it promises to offer visuals parallel to what one would expect from Hollywood blockbusters. Adding further intrigue, the film showcases South Indian superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran donning the mantle of the antagonist. It also features an ensemble cast with the likes of Sonakshi Sinha, Manushi Chhillar, and Alaya F taking on significant roles.

Audiences were recently treated to the official teaser, which promises an adrenaline-fueled experience with high-octane action sequences woven with a patriotic fervor. This preview itself has set the stage, leaving fans eager for the full feature.

Under the banner of Pooja Entertainment, presented by Vashu Bhagnani and in association with AAZ Films, ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ is poised to shatter box office records, as envisioned by industry analysts. With its screenplay and direction by Ali Abbas Zafar and production led by industry stalwarts like Vashu Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani, Himanshu Kishan Mehra, and Ali Abbas Zafar, the project reeks of cinematic promise.

The film not only touts a star-studded lineup and production team but is also gearing up for a grand multi-lingual release which will cater to an array of audiences by transcending through languages such as Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Such a widespread release ensures that ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ will capture the imaginations of viewers of varied demographics.

However, Akshay and Tiger’s ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ is poised for a colossal clash with Ajay Devgn’s period sports drama ‘Maidaan’, setting the stage for a spectacular showdown at the box office. While friendly rivalry stirs the excitement meter, each film seeks to claim its glory on one of Bollywood’s most auspicious weekends.

The fusion of sport and cinema was evident at the L&T Sea Bridge Marathon, showcasing the ability of popular figures to bring attention to community events and promote shared cultural moments. As these actors transition from the starting line of the marathon to the silver screen, the anticipation for their upcoming films and the enduring impact of their social endeavors remain a testament to their influence and the indomitable spirit of entertainment and athleticism in India.
