'Mumbai Saga': Sanjay Gupta reveals that he chose cinema over OTT release at the behest of John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi

Sanjay Gupta has got hopes of his audiences high with the trailer of his upcoming gangster movie ‘Mumbai Saga’. The filmmaker recently revealed that he chose cinema over OTT release at the behest of his stars John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi.

Talking to a news portal, Sanjay reportedly said that John wanted a theatrical release since December and Emraan backed him. According to him, the actors gave him faith to take the risk of the big-screen release.

Gupta also went on to say that someone in the industry has to take the leap, so they are doing it. According to him, this film is a litmus test. In this competitive industry where people enjoy others’ failures, producers, for the first time, are hoping ‘Mumbai Saga’ works so that other films have a better scope.

Apart from John and Emraan, the movie also features Gulshan Grover, Suniel Shetty, Rohit Shetty and others in key roles.
