Luckily for director Sanjay Gupta, he has already found a replacement for Jackie Shroff in actor Mahesh Manjrekar. The film starring John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi is set against a backdrop depicting the city in the 1980s and 90s and is said to revolve around the underworld, mill owners, and police of those times. While talking to a tabloid, Sanjay Gupta said that Mahesh is his go-to person and they have shared a bond since they first collaborated on the film Kaante.Sanjay Gupta only had to sort dates with Manjrekar as he is busy acting and directing other projects as well. Mahesh will be joining the team next week and will be sporting two looks, one as a 55-year-old and another as a 65-year-old. Meanwhile, Mumbai Saga will feature an intense face-off between John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi in the climax.

Sajid Vs Sajid: Sajid Nadiadwala shoots down reports of Sajid Khans legal notice over HOUSEFULL 4
Some over-imaginative portals are doing a great job of assuming scandal where none exist. A section of the media reported last week that SajidKhan who directed Housefull 4 until he was sacked for sexual harassment, has sent a legal notice to the producers asking for his rightful credits. However, when I contacted producer SajidNadiadwala, he said, There is no truth this. We havent received any notice. SajidKhan was the director of the first two Housefull films. He was on board to direct the fourth film in the franchise when he was trapped in the MeToo net and had to leave the project. It was taken over byFarhadSamji. The reports ofSajidKhan demanding his credits for direction cropped up recently. But the fact is,SajidKhan is lying very low while his namesakeNadiadwalais looking forward to the release. SaysNadiadwala, This is our feel-good dont-mind franchise, just loads of fun with no social message. We dont want any negativity attached to it.
