Here is everything you need to know about the film.
John Abraham’s character Ganpat Ram Bhonsle
The Mumbai Saga teaser released earlier today on February 24 and has been receiving positive responses from the audience. The film’s teaser begins with the text ‘When Bombay was not yet Mumbai’ and ‘When violence ruled the streets’ indicating that the film is set against the backdrop of the underworld city when people feared gangsters and goons. The introduction of the city leads to the entry of John Abraham, who resembles his character Manya Surve from the 2013 gangster flick Shootout in Wadala. Other than Shootout, John also portrayed the character of a gangster named Abhimanyu in the 2005 movie Elaan, directed by Vikram Bhatt.
