Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff are extensively shooting for Bade Miyan Chote Miyan in Mumbai. The Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film is the action stars' first big-screen appearance together. Lately, both of them have been sharing several photos and videos on their social media pages, where they heap praiseworthy words. Now, Akshay took to his Instagram page and shared a video where Tiger and he, along with the crew, are seen playing volleyball on the sets.

While sharing the video, the Samrat Prithviraj actor penned a heartfelt note for Tiger. Akshay started by writing, "Dear Tiger,

I’m not someone who writes letters. In fact, I am someone who does not write at all. But today I felt like doing this to make a special point.

It was 32 years ago when I started my career with an action film. In these decades, I thought I had done it all. But just 15 days into filming one of our most ambitious projects, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, I already feel tested, both physically and mentally.

Pain, injuries, broken bones—these are not new to me. But nothing has ever pushed me out of my comfort zone the way @aliabbaszafar and his team have, and you have, in just two weeks. Bhai roz physiotherapy chal rahi hai.

And I’m not complaining. Because the magic of life is always outside the comfort zone. New doors open when we push. Mountains move when we push. We come into this world with a push... Life happens when we push. I enjoy pushing my limits, especially when it is with someone who was born in the year that I started working.

Tere saath yeh shoot karke badiya feel aa rahi hai, Tiger. We are doing amazing stunts; we talk fitness; we work out; and then we play volleyball till we crash. I feel rejuvenated; I feel young from the inside, and this surge of fitness is making me realise that 55 is the age just on my birth certificate.

So, thank you, @tigerjackieshroff, for inspiring me, challenging me, and making me feel joyful in my zone. You and the whole team of Bade Miyan Chote Miyan have all my love and blessings.

Cheers, Akshay. (sic)"
