One of the most prolific filmmakers who has many films to his name is Sanjay Gupta who has given Bollywood films like Shootout at Wadala, Shootout at Lokhandwala, Kaabil and more. The director is known for making gangster flicks and now is planning to make one more. For his next, Sanjay Gupta has brought together two of the most well-known actors of Bollywood and they are none other than John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi. John Abraham was last seen in Sanjay’s film Shootout at Wadala.

Now, Emraan and John will be seen in a gangster flick which is set in the 1980s and 1990s when Bombay became Mumbai. The entire story will be set around the time which involves key events like the closing of mills, the murder of a key businessman, the nexus between politicians, cops, the underworld and the business fraternity. The filmmaker mentions that this film is pretty close to his heart and hence, it has a special place. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, it will be a two-hero film where there will be scenes of a cat and mouse chase between the two.

Sanjay said, “Its my 3rd outing with John and I’m super excited to work with Emraan, I have always wanted to work with him and I am back to my base of filmmaking, gangster dramas and all I can say is…It’s Good to be Home.” Sanjay Gupta will not only be directing John and Emraan but will also be co-producing the film with Bhushan Kumar. The film will be going on the floors in July and will try to wrap up by the end of the year. This will be the first time that Emraan and John will be sharing screen space.

Meanwhile, John is busy with the shooting of his next which is Pagalpanti with Anees Bazmee. While shooting the film, John injured his arm and had to take an off for recovery. On the other hand, Emraan will be working with Amitabh Bachchan in Chehre. It is slated to release on February 21, 2020.
