That's the same project which was titled Mumbai Saga in 2013 where Sanjay Gupta wanted to cast John Abraham & Vivek Oberoi in the lead roles. It was put on hold for so many years but now Sanjay has retrieved this project. They will change the name of this film eventually.

I'm glad Sanjay kept John Abraham because he was superb in Shootout at Wadala. Emraan Hashmi is a good choice as well two-hero, in fact, it will be refreshing to see him and John Abraham for the first in a two-hero movie. I'm confident that both of these two versatile actors will nail their roles because there's an art when it comes to playing gangster roles.

Example of great gangster roles which actors gave an art for their terrific performances.

1. John Abraham -- Shootout At Wadala
2. Ajay Devgn -- Company & Once Upon a Time in Mumbai
3. Sanjay Dutt -- Vaastav
4. Amitabh Bachchan -- Deewaar, Don, Agneepath and Sarkar Raj
5. Emraan Hashmi -- Once Upon a Time in Mumbai
6. Manoj Bajpai -- Satya and Gangs of Wasseypur
7. Vivek Oberoi -- Company, Shootout at Lokhandwala and Rakhta Charita
8. Nana Patekar -- Parinda
9. Nawazuddin Siddiqui -- Gangs of Wasseypur
10. KGF -- Yash
