John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi starrer Mumabai Saga, which released yesterday at the box office, has got affected by night curfews and restrictions in the Maharashtra state. This impacted a lot on the business of the gangster-drama venture as it was expected to earn maximum collection from this region. As per the early estimates, the film has raked in around Rs 2.50 crore, which is fair enough for a COVID-19 situation but the rise in the cases of coronavirus may affect the collections of Mumbai Saga over the weekend.
Directed by Sanjay Gupta, the film also features Suniel Shetty, Kajal Aggarwal, Rohit Roy, Anjana Sukhani, Mahesh Manjrekar, Prateik Babbar, Samir Soni, Amole Gupte and Gulshan Grover in pivotal roles. It is produced under the banners of T-Series and White Feather Films. Despite several films taking digital route, John Abraham and company decided to opt for a theatrical release. The actor, who is known for his action-packed roles, spoke about performing the high-octane scenes and said during the trailer launch, "It's tough because my bones are breaking (laughs). But this is different in terms of action because this one (Mumbai Saga) has very raw action. It's difficult but I enjoy this space. It's like for some actors they love dancing, for me the action is my dance. So, I enjoy that space, it's like an item song for me."
While fans have praised John and Emraan's performance, they found the plot of the film quite average. So, are you planning to watch this film in the cinema halls? Tweet and let us know @bollywood_life.
