"My dad has been through the times in the 70s and the 80s when underworld stories had first started making headlines. As a kid, I used to chance upon hearing such stories", recollects Emraan, "Now that Milan was narrating the script to me, I found myself exploring the roots of where it all began. Underworld figures have always been larger than life and what we get to see in the film is some really fascinating stuff. I am sure we have a winner in hands."

No wonder, he didn't hesitate once he was convinced with the script of ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI. Despite Ajay Devgn being a powerhouse performer, Emraan knew that he would manage to stand on his own and come up with a bravura act himself.

"It was all about catching hold of an opportunity like that. For a good film, even if there are number of other actors, I won't let that slip by due to any hard or fast rule that I may have set for myself. Aap har waqt nahi soch sakte hi film mein kitne hero hain", reasons Emraan, "If it is a great story, as in the case of ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI, all calculations and trade have to be kept aside. You have to go with the flow, simple. Aakhir apne lifetime mein how many great roles do you actually get?"
