Parineeti Chopra would have been nervous if Saina was present on set

Mumbai, March 20 (TIWN) Actress Parineeti Chopra plays badminton ace Saina Nehwal in the biopic "Saina". The actress says she is glad that only trainers were around on the set and not Saina herself.

Sanjay Gupta's latest is an extension of his trademark "Shootout" films, reloading familiar uber-violence with old-school Bollywood drama about cops, gangsters and the self-seeking political set, packing in loud dialogues and the essential naach-gaana.     Coming after "Shootout At Lokhandwala' and "Shootout At Wadala", and at a time when everything about cinema is being drastically reorganised, "Mumbai Saga" needed to have some sort of a USP. It doesn't -- Gupta and team seem confident that bringing back a whiff of what worked once upon a time in Bollywood would be enough to rake it in at a time when the audience is only cautiously returning to the halls.  Like the "Shootout" films, "Mumbai Saga", too, banks on a slice of real life to set up its fictional action-drama quotient. This time, Gupta falls back on a crucial phase of Mumbai's contemporary socio-politics -- the eighties and the nineties – when the city's mills, spread across prime property, were brought down in order to facilitate the construction of high-end highrises, and malls.
