Amid coronavirus lockdown, Sanjay Gupta works on Mumbai Saga final cut

The filmmaker is making use of digital connectivity to lock the final cut

Published: 07th April 2020

Work in the film industry has stalled due to the ongoing 21-day lockdown. However, director Sanjay Gupta, who was busy shooting the last schedule of Mumbai Saga before the pandemic broke out, is making the most of digital connectivity to keep the wheels in motion. The director tweeted that he has started work on the final cut of the film, which stars John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead roles.

Sanjay Gupta stated, “I begin the most crucial part of the film which is locking the final cut. Only this time my editor Bunty Nagi and me are miles apart instead of being in the same room. But thanks to the internet we are virtually together.”

Mumbai Saga captures the changing face of India’s financial capital. The film is based on events from the 80s and 90s that show how the long skyscrapers and malls replaced the mills in Mumbai, and all that went into transforming Bombay into Mumbai.

The supporting cast includes Mahesh Manjrekar, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Ronit Roy, and others.
