The film is based on the ghastly 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai that lasted for four days and were carried out by 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks by 10 members of Lashkar-e-Taiba in November 2008. The Oberoi Trident and The Taj Palace & Tower were two of the prominent places where the attacks happened. Hotel Mumbai revolves around the panic situation that occurred inside the Taj Hotel during the attacks. It focuses on the courage and presence of mind that the staff of the hotel showed while rescuing the guests during the attacks.
