As we all know, the film industry is also facing lockdown just like the entire country because of the coronavirus pandemic. But filmmaker Sanjay Gupta is ensuring that the post-production work of his next film Mumbai Saga (2020) does not stop.
Bunty Negi, who has been editing the film from home, has been constantly coordinating with Gupta. “I’ve been continuously working. My editor Bunty Negi sends me the material every evening. Early morning, I make my notes, I send them back to him. This is something I’ve been doing in the past because if I’m shooting, the edits go on. He sends it to me on laptop and I just send him my notes,” said Gupta in an official statement.
But that’s not all. Gupta sends some sequences to the film’s actors John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi for their approval and feedback. However, Hashmi is not comfortable with the process. “Sanjay has shown me a bit, but I get too scared. I don’t watch till the last bit is completed. I’m the kind of actor who doesn’t really go and watch the monitor,” said the actor.
Produced by T-Series and White Feather Films, Mumbai Saga also stars, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, Mahesh Manjrekar, Gulshan Grover, Amole Gupte, Prateik Babbar, Rohit Roy and Kajal Aggarwal.
