#StayHomeStaySafe: Sanjay Gupta edits Mumbai Saga with digital connectivity
With the COVID19 pandemic and the 21-day blockade across the country, most industries have had to stop their work. The film industry is one of those that has based its activities completely. However, technology has been offering some form of relief to everyone sitting inside. Take filmmaker-writer Sanjay Gupta for example. The director was filming for the conclusive schedule of his gangster drama, Mumbai Saga, starring John Abraham , Emraan Hashmi and Kajal Aggarwal. He has been using digital connectivity to keep the wheels moving.
Sanjay has connected with the editor of his movie, Bunty negi , every day to take the final cut of the film and try to reach the deadline as decided. I started working on the most crucial part of completing the movie, which is the editing and the final cut. The only difference between this movie and my other movies is that Bunty and I are not in the same room. We are working together from our respective homes: virtual reality to the rescue. We have to thank the Internet for this. ” Mumbai Saga revolves around what changed Bombay to Mumbai between the eighties and nineties.
Alongside this, Sanjay is also busy completing the script for the third outing in the Shooting series for Ekta Kapoor and has titled it Shooting in Bombay. Hearsay is that it's an exhaustive account of key players from Mumbai's dark lanes.
