Singham actor Kajal Aggarwal has been reportedly roped in to be cast opposite John Abraham in Mumbai Saga.
Talking about casting Kajal for the film, director Sanjay Gupta says: “The most important thing is that my gangster films often also have strong female characters.
This character starts off as John’s girlfriend, then becomes his wife.
I needed an actress who could play a 17-year-old college girl, a young wife and then, a strong woman in her 30s.
I’m an admirer of Kajal’s work; she looks lovely and has a great screen presence. I’m glad we’re collaborating on this film.”
The film is set in the 1980s-’90s revolving around all that went into transforming Bombay into Mumbai.
Mumbai Saga also stars Emraan Hashmi, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty and Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Amole Gupte and Rohit Roy among others.
It marks Aggarwal’s return to Hindi cinema after a hiatus of three years. Her last film was with Randeep Hooda in Do Lafzon Ki Kahani.
She has been a prominent face in South-Indian films.
To be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishnan Kumar, Anuradha Gupta and Sangeeta Ahir, the movie is scheduled to hit theatres on June 19, 2020.
