John Abraham is back again with a crime-thriller and we can't keep calm. The teaser of the actor's much-anticipated film Mumbai Saga, co-starring Emraan Hashmi, dropped on the Internet on Wednesday and it will blow your mind. John plays the role of a deadly gangster named Amartya Rao, who wants to dominate the Bombay underworld in the Eighties and the Nineties, before the city was renamed to Mumbai. Emraan Hashmi features as a no-nonsense cop, who is hell-bent on destroying Amartya's reign and is determined to make Bombay violence-free. The teaser introduces John Abraham as a gangster who "rose from the streets of Bombay to rule Mumbai" and Emraan as a cop who "rose from the ghettos of Bombay to stop" Amartya Rao.
The film, directed by Sanjay Gupta and produced by Bhushan and Krishan Kumar under their banner T-Series, also stars Sunil Shetty, Kajal Aggarwal Mahesh Manjrekar, Gulshan Grover, Amole Gupte, Rohit Roy and Prateik Babbar.

Mumbai Saga marks John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi's first project together. The film was earlier scheduled to release in June last year but its shooting schedule got postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, which lead to the nation-wide lockdown. The stars resumed the shoot in Ramoji Film City in compliance with the guidelines given by Producers Guild Of India in July last year and completed it in 12 days.
