Directed by Ankush Bhatt, of Bhindi Bazaar Inc. fame, the movie mirrors the Mumbai underbelly and revolves around the nexus between powerful corrupt dance bar lords and the Mumbai Police. If rumour mills are to be believed, Nana has been offered the pivotal role of Shetty; the most dreaded character in the story.

Sachiin plays a quirky cop in this realistic commercial potboiler, while Mallika essays the role of an irresistible dance bar queen. Mumbai Mirror has music by Anand Raj Anand and shooting is expected to commence next month with a wrap in three months flat.

The other intriguing part is that Sachiin might go in for either a bald look or a military-style crew haircut for this movie. He’s also been loosing weight and training hard on his physique to fit into the role of a whimsical cop.
