Akshay Kumar is currently in the UK, shooting with Tiger Shroff for ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’. Last week, the actor suffered a knee injury while shooting for some expensive action sequences.
Shooting for Tiger Shroff
Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff have been busy shooting for the mega-budget action film Bade Miyan Chote Miyan in the UK over the last month. With a bunch of bikes, choppers, cars, and more involved, Akshay ended up injuring himself on sets. However, that didn’t stop him from shooting a Rs 15-crore action sequence.
“Akshay Kumar has a bad tear on his knee and is every day even walking with the support of a stick to make things easy for him. However, work commitment and professionalism are keeping him on his toes on the film set. Despite the injury, he is continuing to shoot the action scenes for Bade Miyan Chote Miyan with all precautions,” quoted Pinkvilla.

The action scene
Furthermore, the source added that over Rs 15 crore had been invested in this particular sequence, and taking a break on the shoot would not only result in work coming to standstill but would also cause some financial losses to the producers.
