Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta, who has directed films like Shootout At Wadala and Kaabil, has been busy with the shooting of his gangster drama, Mumbai Saga. The film, which stars John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi in the leading roles, began shooting in August last year in South Mumbai.
Set in the 1980s, the story revolves around gangsters and cops. The first look of the lead actors has been revealed. John Abraham looks menacing as a fierce gangster. Dressed in grey kurta and white pajama, a red tika on his forehead, the actor is staring at someone in anger. Emraan Hashmi takes on the cop avatar for the film.
Mumbai Saga is set in the 80s and based on true events. “Not many know what made Mumbai the city it is today. It makes for a compelling story, which will make you go, ‘Oh my God!”, said Gupta. The film is being shot in real locations and has an ensemble cast of 11 principal actors. The film, which is being produced by Bhushan Kumar, also promises high octane stunts, and the entire team has dived head-on into the film. In fact John Abraham tried to shoot for the film despite a torn ligament in the arm. “He didn’t tell us about the injury and dived into an action sequence, in the process, aggravating it. The last two-week shoot has a lot of stunts so, we will resume after he’s completely recovered, sometime next month”, informed the director.
Sanjay Gupta has in the past directed quite a few memorable gangster dramas, and to ensure that Mumbai Saga has a fresh palette, he is reinventing is style and working with new people. “My DOP, Shikhar Bhatnagar, is a debutant with a fresh perspective on the era and it’s also my first with action directors Anbu-Ariv.”
Set in the 1980s-1990s period, it stars John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Rohit Roy, and Amole Gupte. It is set for the 2020 release. Mumbai Saga is a Gulshan Kumar presentation, and is backed by T-Series and White Feather Films production. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Sangiita Ahir and Anuradha Gupta.
