    Mumbai Saga: Emraan Hashmi Talks About Insecurities That May Come With Two-Hero Projects

    While it was initially reported that Sanjay Gupta’s multi-starrer Mumbai Saga may take a digital route, it was later announced that the action crime film will hit theatres on 19th March. Featuring an ensemble cast of talented actors such as John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi, Suniel Shetty, Kajal Aggarwal, Gulshan Grover among others, the film is set in 80s and 90s. Well just like fans, Emraan is also glad that the film will release in theatres. In fact, when he watched it, he called the director and told him that they have made the right move for the ‘immersive’ film.

    In a recent chat with Mid Day, the actor was asked about insecurities that may come with projects featuring two heroes. Sharing how it did not bother him as he got a warm welcome on sets by John and his other co-stars, Emraan shared, “I loved Kaante [2002], so working with Gupta was always on my bucket list. I’d be lying if I say actors don’t feel insecure, but the anxieties were put to rest on day one. They were warm, and adopted an honest approach to what was on the page. Gupta allows actors to interpret their character and doesn’t crowd you with his own thoughts.”

    Talking about his character, Emraan revealed that after watching the film his family asked if he was a good cop or bad cop, as the character could not be boxed easily. He shared that there are many films that have good hearted righteous heroes but the actor finds that boring. Emraan explained, “There’s redemption in life and the same must be in stories. Moreover, one has to understand that for cops to clean up streets in outlaw situations, they have to bend the rules. There’s a certain morality that his duty commands him to adhere to but the situation back then was tough. Bombay had become a lawless land and Savarkar (his character) had to do what he had to, to take control of the situation.”

    That seems fair and definitely sounds exciting!
