ZEE5’s Angad Bedi starrer crime web series Mumbhai is all set to trace back the time when Mumbai was “Bombay”. Revolving around the political-underworld nexus life of the city, the show will unravel how fierce cops operated within the bounds of the law to put the rule of gangsters to an end. The trailer of the film unveils several scenic locations which still exists in the city of dreams. Ahead of Mumbhai’s release, here we have compiled how the city looked back in the day.

Victoria Terminus now knows as Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus

CST, formerly known as VT, is a historic terminal train station which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was designed by British architecture Frederick William Stevens in an exuberant Italian Gothic style.

 

D.N. Road

Dadabhai Naoroji Road (D.N.Road)  is a North-South commercial artery road in South Bombay. From the Crawford Market, the road links CST to  Flora Fountain. The entire stretch is known for its Neo-classical and Gothic Revival buildings and parks which stands tall ever since the 19th century.

Asiatic Society

The Asiatic Society was an organisation built during the British Raj. It still stands strong in the city. The aim of creating this monument was to further enhance ‘oriental research’.
