Results in previous elections—Since, 1990 to 2004 Assembly elections, this constituency was won by Shiv Sena candidate Datta Nalawade.

NCP's Sachin Mohan Ahir won with 52,398 votes against Shiv Sena's Ashish Chemburkar. In 2014, Shiv Sena returned to power when its candidate Sunil Govind Shinde won with a margin of about 30,000 votes.

Once home to the fisherfolk, Worli later became a textile hub and has now developed into an area housing skyscrapers and commercial complexes. The landmarks include Nehru Centre, Nehru Planetarium, Haji Ali dargah and the Mahalaxmi racecourse.
