Talented actor replaces John Abraham


After directing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback film ‘Jazbaa’, Sanjay Gupta is all set to direct Abhishek Bachchan in his next gangster drama ‘Ek Tha Gangster’, which was earlier titled ‘Mumbai Saga’.

Earlier, the film was said to be starring John Abraham and Huma Qureshi in the lead roles but now things seem to have changed and the makers have roped in Abhishek Bachchan.

Currently, the pre-production works are progressing at a brisk pace and it is all set to go on floors in early next year. The film will be based on S. Hussain Zaidi’s Byculla to Bangkok book and it will deal with how youngsters were recruited and went on to become local goons in the real life.
