We’ve learnt that John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi will be starring together in ‘Mumbai Saga’. The film will be directed by Sanjay Gupta. The film also stars Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Amole Gupte and Rohit Roy. According to recent reports, ‘Singham’ actress Kajal Aggarwal will also be starring in the film.
According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Kajal Aggarwal will be John Abraham’s lady love in ‘Mumbai Saga’. While John will be romancing a Heroine, Emraan Hashmi will have no heroine in the movie. ‘Mumbai Saga’ is set in the 1980s and 1990s. It revolves around the transformation of Bombay into Mumbai. The filming of the movie went on floors this Tuesday. The movie is set to release on June 19, 2020.
Talking about taking up Kajal in the film, Sanjay told Mumbai Mirror, “The most important thing is that my gangster films often also have strong female characters. This character starts off as John’s girlfriend, then becomes his wife.”
He added, “I needed an actress who could play a 17-year-old college girl, a young wife and then, a strong woman in her 30s. I’m an admirer of Kajal’s work, she looks lovely and has a great screen presence. I’m glad we’re collaborating on this film.”
According to a report by DNA, Sanjay had earlier said about ‘Mumbai Saga’, “The film is based on the events between the mid-’80s and ’90s. The story revolves around how the mills in Mumbai were shut down to make malls and high rise buildings which in turn changed the whole landscape of our city.”
