Mombasa was an important centre for the trade in spices, gold, and ivory with trade links as far as India and China, during the pre-modern period. Indian history shows that there was trade links between Mombasa and Cholas of South India.
Mombasa is a major trade centre and home to Kenya's only large seaport, the Kilindini Harbour. Kilindini is an old Swahili term meaning "deep". The port is so-called because the channel is naturally very deep. Kilindini Harbor is an example of a natural geographic phenomenon called a "ria", formed millions of years ago when the sea level rose and engulfed a river that was flowing from the mainland.
The Uganda Railways was colloquially known as The Lunatic Express & the Iron Snake during the early periods.
The film is the highest grossing film of Dev's career till now.
