    Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff reached Lucknow yesterday (February 26) to promote their upcoming movie Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. Being true blue action heroes and adhering to the genre of the film, they made their entry by hanging in wires. The crowd soon went into a frenzy while watching them perform such daredevilry stunts. However, this soon turned into a rather unpleasant affair as the crowd became uncontrollable which resulted in a mob-like situation.

    Talking about the same, many videos have been going viral wherein police officials had to resort to lathi charges to control the crowd. Reportedly, after managing to clear the crowd, several chappals and sandals were found lying haywire. Take a look at some of the videos.

    According to a news report in Indian Express, the crowd went further berserk when Akshay and Tiger began to throw freebies at the crowd. The duo had planned to perform some more stunts and give some exciting gifts to the crowd but because of this situation, the event had to be cancelled. The Phir Hera Pheri actor also tried to control the situation by addressing the crowd himself. He was heard saying, “Aap logon se haath jodd kar vinti hai please araam se, hum aapke yahan aaye hain hain, aapse milne, aapse baat karne, please apne aapko dekhiye, saath mein ladies bhi hain bachche bhi hain, main aapse request karta hun araam se (I request you with folded hands, please be careful. We have come here to meet you, to talk to you. Please be careful, there are ladies and children too. I request you all to be careful).”

    Well, looks like this ambitious promotion strategy went wrong. The film Bade Miyan Chote Miyan has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. It also stars Prithviraj Sukumaran, Sonakshi Sinha, Manushi Chhillar, and Alaya F in lead roles. The movie will be released on April 9, 2024.
