Mumbaikar has braved the pandemic and made headlines all through its making. But this Santosh Sivan-helmed film has also proved to be lucky for its actors. Vikrant Massey has signed back to back movies after Mumbaikar!, on the other hand, has been signed by Sriram Raghavan and two Hindi mega web-series and is touted to be one of the highest-paid actors in the Hindi OTT space. In the meantime, the ace director-cinematographer Santosh Sivan-helmed Mumbaikar, completed its shoot schedule, non-stop, at the busiest city, despite the pandemic wave with 200 plus blessed crew and shooting day-night with multiple cameras and multiple locations on every single day from start to finish. The film has captured the spirit and the never-say-die attitude of Mumbai, in a full-fledged commercial and flavourful avatar.
