Mumbai or Bombay has always been a multicultural and multi ethnic society. Its culture is a potpourri of Maharashtrian, Gujarati, Parsi and Islamic elements. Whether it is the Siddhi Vinayak Temple or the Parsi Tower of Silence or Haji Ali, all of them co-exist in this metropolis. Though in the recent past, the Shiv Sena has tried to give Mumbai a very Marathi identity, most still consider this the land of opportunity, particularly to be immortalized on celluloid.
