Audiences who went to watch Hrithik Roshan-Barbara Mori-starrer Kites got a sneak peak of upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Mumbai. The promotional trailer of the film was played during Kites’s screening.
The Balaji production is directed by Milan Luthria and stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Kangna Ranaut and Prachi Desai. The film, set primarily in 1970s Mumbai, harps back to an era of smuggling, cabaret, romance and the mafia. Seen through the eyes of a police officer, it traces the changing face of the Mumbai underworld.
It follows the rise of Sultan (Ajay Devgn), and his eventual fall when his protégé Shoaib (Emraan Hashmi), challenges his supremacy and usurps power to rule Mumbai’s murky underbelly.
The film is set for a July 30 release worldwide.
