Mumbai City Trailer:
The trailer strikes a resemblance to Mahesh Bhatt’s production film Life In A Metro. Both the films depict the struggling life in Mumbai city.
Talking about the similarity in both the films, Mahesh Bhatt said, “I think every human being has gone through a struggle in their life and Anurag Basu’s ‘Life In A Metro’ looks closer to this film but this film has a different kind of narrative.”
It is the first time that filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has stepped into the shoes of an actor. Talking about his experience as an actor, he said, “Acting is a difficult task. In acting, you have to remember lines and you have to be on your toes. I think it is easy to tell how to act from behind the camera but it is difficult to smile in front of the camera.”
Bhatt who has directed critically acclaimed films like Zakhm, Naam etc said, “It is a different medium and I will never consider myself as an actor and if audience like my performance in the film, then all credit goes to Tariq Khan.”
The audience is excited about the film. It is slated for October 5 release. Mumbai City Trailer has already touched around a million views on Youtube.
