Shooting for ‘Mumbai Saga’ is already underway, however director Sanjay Gupta is busy working with his team to create a face-off between Emraan Hashmi and John Abraham like never seen before.
Reported on Mid-day, Gupta shared how action directors Vikram More and Anbariv are currently designing the fight sequence for the climax. “What’s the point of bringing two heroes together if they don’t have a face-off? I have chalked out several confrontation scenes between the two leads. For the final sequence, we have designed an elaborate action set-piece that will have John and Emraan engage in hand-to-hand combat,” said Gupta.
When asked if both Hashmi and Abraham will be playing rival gangs, Gupta remained tight-lipped, “I can’t divulge what they play but I can assure you that Mumbai Saga is full of action and one-liners.”
Gupta also revealed the preparations Hashmi has been undertaking for his role, “Emraan was shooting for Ezra in Mauritius. He took his trainer along and came back a changed man — all pumped up, broad shoulders and bulked-up arms. He told me, ‘Come on, I have to go up against John, it has to look convincing.'”
‘Mumbai Saga’ is slated to release in June 2020, and also stars Suniel Shetty, Jackie Shroff, Gulshan Grover, Pratik Babbar and Rohit Roy.
