Mohalla bachaate bachaate shahar jalaa diyaa

Film: Raees
Year of release: 2017
Spoken by: Raees (Shahrukh Khan)
Spoken to: Aasiya (Mahira Khan)
Dialogue writer: Rahul Dholakiya and others

The film is an extremely boring film. A sure shot cure for chronic insomnia. However, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. This dialogue is one such moment. Like many criminals, this bootlegger (Raees) too seeks legitimacy by moving to social work and politics. However, inadvertently he ends up becoming the mule for the transport of RDX used in the Mumbai bomb blasts. In a pensive moment, he confesses to his wife:

"mohallaa bachaate bachaate shahar jalaa diyaa"
"मोहल्ला बचाते बचाते शहर जला दिया"
