"So it's a major thing for me that two of my upcoming projects are based on parts based on armed forces and law enforcement personnel. "I have worked with Ekta for another project just recently and I'm looking forward to another fantastic association. The script of MUMBhai is very layered and detailed and it's part for me which will be new." Actor Sikandar Kher will reportedly essay the role of a gangster in MUMBhai.
