Talking more about the same, Manushi added her experience of working alongside her Prithviraj co-star, Akshay Kumar.

Manushi Chillar talks about the age-difference debate in Bollywood

Going forward in the interview, Manushi Chillar mentioned that working with a superstar can be beneficial as it brings a lot of visibility for young actresses. The diva added that there was a huge age difference in her first film as well, but for Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, it was not a love story of her and Akshay's characters. She added that the makers wanted to make a song that only paired her and Akshay, which is fine with her. Stating that the songs were only for marketing, Manushi shared that she saw nothing atrocious about it. In Manushi's words:

"Working with a superstar is good. You get a certain amount of visibility. If I talk about my first film, there was an age gap. They wanted to play the whole thing. In this film, there was no pairing. We did songs for marketing. There had to be a way to put two people together for the songs, but that's pretty much it, which is fine. I don't see it as something that was atrocious or something that shouldn't have been there. It wasn't like a love story anyway."
