While the team of Mumbai Saga (2020) is on a break because of actor John Abraham's injury, director Sanjay Gupta has revealed his look as a gangster in the upcoming crime saga which is set in the 1980s and 1990s.
John had injured his arm while shooting for his previous film, Pagalpanti (2019), and was advised eight weeks' rest.
"One of my favourite moments from Mumbai Saga. And of course Mr Abraham (sic) like never before," wrote Gupta on Twitter.

After playing the hero in films like Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran (2018), Romeo Akbar Walter (2019) and Batla House (2019), John is back playing a character with grey shades. He plays a gangster, and is seen sitting menacingly, awaiting someone.
He sports a red tika (vermilion mark) on his forehead and is dressed in a grey kurta, enhanced with gold jewellery — chains around his neck and rings on the fingers of his right hand.
The film's ensemble cast includes Emraan Hashmi, Suniel Shetty, Gulshan Grover, Prateik Babbar, Rohit Roy, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Amol Gupte. Hashmi is said to play a cop in the period saga.
Mumbai Saga, produced by T-Series and White Feather Productions, is due to be released on 19 June.
