Prithviraj on how he thought he wouldn't be able to do film

Prithviraj said, “While shooting for the climax of Salaar, I was talking to Prashanth about this nice and wonderful script that Ali Abbas Zafar narrated to me. I told him that I’ve been offered a role in the film but I won’t be able to do it because of date issues. I spoke to Prashanth for about 20 minutes about the film and the script. That’s when he told me that it really looks like I want to do it. He said, ‘Knowing you, if you really let it go, you’ll feel rotten.’ And he was absolutely right. If I wasn’t a part of Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, I would’ve been kicking myself after watching it.”

“Unfortunately, I was doing two films at the same time, which I usually never do. In the Malayalam industry, we don’t have the practice of doing multiple films together. When we start a film, we stick with it until we finish it and then move onto another one. But thankfully, things moved around a bit. Ali also adjusted a little which helped me do the film. I’m glad I could do it because it’s a very good film," he added.
