Sanjay Gupta has always presented the viewers with some of the best gangster films like ‘Kaante’, ‘Shootout At Lokhandwala’, ‘Shootout At Wadala’ and many more. The filmmaker is now all set to direct yet another gangster film which will star John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi. Both Hashmi and Abraham have previously worked in gangster flicks, but this would be the first time when they will be sharing screen space.


A report in Mumbai Mirror states that Sanjay’s directorial will be a two-hero film. The storyline will focus on the cat and mouse chase between the lead characters with one playing the cop and the other playing a gangster. The report also further stated that the film is inspired by true events like the shutdown of mills, corrupt police and politicians, underworld’s nexus, and it will thereby chronicle what went behind the transformation of Bombay into Mumbai.

Confirming the news, Sanjay Gupta told IANS, “It’s my third outing with John and I’m super excited to work with Emraan. I have always wanted to work with him and I am back to my base of film making — gangster dramas and all I can say is… It’s good to be home.”

Coming back to its lead actors, both John and Emraan have already enthralled the audience with their portrayal of a gangster in ‘Shootout at Wadala’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai’.

The untitled film will apparently hit the silver screens next year.
