In just two years, the new city has transformed itself into one of the hottest places in the Indian subcontinent.
Nowhere in the whole of India has been so vibrant a metropolis since the advent of Independence.
Its now the second most populous city in the country after New Delhi.
With the country’s economic boom and the growing number of visitors, Mumbai is in an enviable position to host many of the world’s largest events such as the G20 summit in July.
This year, it is also host to the largest ever international football tournament, the Champions League, which will see Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich play for the trophy.
The tournament will be held at the stadium of the newly constructed Olympic Stadium, the first in the region.
The tournament will see England, Russia and France take on Germany and Spain.
In the past, the tournament has often been played at the ground that once hosted the Delhi Cup, the world championship that was held at Indira Gandhi Stadium for over 70 years.
However, it has been relocated to the stadium at the new venue, the stadium where the World Cup will be played.
The move comes after the construction of the stadium on land that was once occupied by the Delhi Sports Club and the Delhi Industrial City, a massive residential complex built by the British Government in 1930.
Its now a world-class sports complex and is home to the countrys biggest sporting event, the Indian Premier League.
As well as hosting the international events, the city has also become the venue for the world premiere of the documentary Fatal Attraction: The Life and Death of Oscar Isaac.
According to a report in The Times of India, the film is a “sad, harrowing and heart-wrenching tale of a woman whose life was taken from her at the tender age of 14, as she was raped by an American man in a hotel room in New York”.
It is said that the rape and killing of Oscar Isaac had been planned for months and was a “brazen crime” carried out by “a serial killer”.
The story, which was initially published in 2009, is being adapted into a film.
The film, which is due to be released in April, will be shot in Mumbai and is set to feature a number of actors, including Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
“This is the first time that we have been able to produce a film with a strong Indian audience in India, and this is going to be the biggest film ever made here in Mumbai,” said Suresh Datar, the co-founder of Mumbai’s first film festival, the Maharashtra Film Festival.
He added that the film has been inspired by the experience of the survivors of the Delhi Rape and the Mumbai Rape.
One of the themes of the film will be the role of women in the development of the country, which has been one of India’s most pressing issues.
For its part, Mumbai’s government has also promised to help the survivors.
Mumbai is expected to host the 2022 World Cup and the 2022 Summer Olympics.
