In June, director Sanjay Gupta informed MidDay that he has decided to film the last leg of the John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi-starrer Mumbai Saga from July 15 at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. The director also took out a crew of 30 members, including the lead actors, for the shoot. However, with the increasing number of coronavirus cases in most cities last month, the director has decided to discontinue the Hyderabad stint.
Sanjay Gupta revealed for publication, that he had come to the decision during his one-week visit to Mumbai after discussions with his co-producers and leading men.
Now, the filmmaker wants to return to the universe of crime saga by August 15, but also accepts that the dates can be extended further.
Produced by T-Series and White Feather Films, Mumbai Saga will also feature Jackie Shroff, Sunil Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover and others.
