Saif Ali Khan has done it again! After ‘no concept of India until the British came’ went viral, the ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ actor was seen saying, “This is not even Mumbai, it is Andheri”, in a viral video. The actor who was shooting for a show was out with the host Siddhaarth Aalambayan on ‘Bombay Journey’, and correcting him, Saif said, “Technically you’re calling it Bombay, it’s now Mumbai, and this is not even Mumbai, this is Andheri.”
While some called him an ‘elitist’ for making that statement and questioned his geographical knowledge, a few defended the actor and gave the reasoning behind ‘Mumbai city and Mumbai suburban’ being different districts of Maharashtra.
Well, he did use the word “technically”, and technically he’s correct. And being technically correct is the best kind of correct.

People are used to calling both Mumbai city and Mumbai suburban simply mumbai even though they both are different districts of Maharashtra. Listen carefully he started with technically …

Actually his history is correct. And for Mumbaikars, Bombay stops at Mahim Causeway. Rest is just suburbs. This is an inside joke only people from Bombay will understand.

Now I am sure you are duffer both in history and geography😂

Technically he’s right. Even in today’s time , majority of Mumbaikars from suburbs say ” going to Mumbai ” when they plan to go to south Mumbai.
Municipal corporation wise he’s obviously wrong where Mumbai is included from Dahisar to Churchgate side.

Andheri is Mumbai suburban so technically he is right.
