In 2009, MNS runner up Nitin Vijaykumar Sardesai had defeated the current MLA Sada Sarvankar who represented Congress in this elections with a margin of about 11,000 votes. In 1999 and 2004, Shiv Sena's Suresh Anant Gambhir won the Assembly polls.

Demographics - The name Mahim is derived from the ancient Mahikavati meaning "miraculous" in Sanskrit. Mahim was one of the seven islands that originally made up Mumbai.

Mahim is among the few areas in Mumbai that houses temple, church, mosque and fire temple with few meters of each other. It also has the Bandra-Kurla complex, which has many corporate offices and a mangrove ecosystem.

Narrow roads, hawkers, and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) new vehicle parking policy are among the key issues. The Shiv Sena has campaigning on national issues such as Article 370, while MNS is raising local issues such as parking, lack of beach cleanliness, chaos caused by Metro construction, footpaths, bad roads and potholes. Other issues in the constituency include redevelopment of old buildings.

With redevelopment in the area, business communities such as Gujaratis, Jains and Marawadis have also made it their home, apart from the Maharashtrians inhabiting the constituency.

The constituency will see a high stake battle between Shiv Sena and the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). The Shiv Sena has fielded sitting legislator Sada Sarvankar while the MNS has fielded former corporator and party spokesperson Sandeep Deshpande. The Congress has fielded Pravin Naik.
