Maidaan vs Bade Miyan Chote Miyan box office collection Day 1: Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff’s movie beats Ajay Devgn’s film by an impressive margin

This year’s Eid holiday saw an epic battle at the box office between Ajay Devgn’s sports biopic Maidaan and Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff’s highly anticipated Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.

The results are in. The audience at the theatre seemed to have favoured Akshay and Tiger’s blockbuster actioner over Ajay’s biographical drama, as the former brought in twice as much money on opening day.


According to reports, Maidaan’s opening day gross at the box office was a fairly meagre Rs 7.10 crore. Only Rs 4.50 crore was earned during the movie’s April 11 theatre release; the remaining Rs 2.6 crore was made possible by the producers’ April 10 paid screenings.

However, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan made Rs 15.50 crore on its opening day on Thursday, making it the second-highest opening of 2024 (the first being Hrithik Roshan’s Fighter, starring Deepika Padukone).

Despite the fact that Bade Miyan Chote Miyan was definitely the winner of the match, the first-day statistics are very disappointing considering the star power of Akshay and Tiger and the enormous budget that the movie was made on.

About Maidaan

Maidaan is based on the life and travels of Syed Abdul Rahim, an Indian football coach who is credited with revolutionising the sport in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The film had been in production for a number of years, but the COVID-19 lockout and subsequent accusations against the producers caused numerous challenges to the film’s release.

Vendors accused producer Boney Kapoor of not paying nearly Rs 1 crore in unpaid invoices for equipment he obtained for Maidaan’s filming. Furthermore, a writer had filed a case in a Madras court the day before the movie’s premiere, alleging that the story was plagiarised.

If rumours are to be believed, a whopping Rs 350 crore was spent filming the movie in some of the world’s most spectacular locales.
