As an actor, Prithviraj Sukumaran says he doesn’t mind taking a backseat to a film and letting other stars shine, like in his upcoming big Hindi release, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, where he plays the antagonist. The Malayalam star, who has starred in Hindi titles like Aiyyaa, Aurangzeb And Name Shabana, stars alongside Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff in the action film directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. “I believe that instead of putting yourself first, you should put the film and ensure that the casting is done in a way that justifies the story… If you look at my filmography in Malayalam, there are several films where I have taken a backseat in terms of screen time,” Prithviraj Sukumaran told PTI.

The 41-year-old actor gave the example of his 2021 film Kuruthiin which he played the antagonist, even though he was offered the lead role by director Manu Warrier.

Kuruthi was first pitched to me to play the lead role, played by Roshan Mathew. It took a lot of convincing on my part to convince director Manu Warrier that I should play the villain and someone else should be the hero,” said the actor, known for his leading role in Salaar, Lucifer, Kaaviya Thalaivan And Ravananan in the south.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan sees Akshay and Tiger perform death-defying stunts as they play two elite soldiers who go on a mission to recover a stolen AI weapon.

Though the film stars Kumar and Shroff in the lead roles, it is incomplete without the presence of his character Kabir, Sukumaran added. “In Bade Miyan Chote MiyanThere is Akshay sir, he is one of the biggest stars in the country, and there is Tiger, a very popular young star from Hindi. I can assure that the film is incomplete without Kabir.” Sukumaran praised Kumar for leading a disciplined lifestyle where he can balance his professional and personal life.

“They are professional, focused and good at action. Working with Akshay sir was an eye-opening experience. The way he approaches his work, like he finishes at 7 am, and you will never see him tired on a set. He is always full of energy and leads a rigid, disciplined lifestyle,” he said.

“He has a great fun side. When we were filming in Glasgow, Scotland, he took us out for dinner. I saw the great relationship he shares with his son (Aarav), he is a great father,” he recalled himself.

Produced by Pooja Entertainment in association with AAZ, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan will hit the screens on the occasion of Eid on April 10. Also starring Manushi Chhillar and Alaya F.
