Spoof cinema of Malegaon

January 1, 2010

Spoof cinema of MalegaonShaikh Nasir is one of several makers of low-budget, spoof movies set in the industrial town of Malegaon, around 300 km from Mumbai, and a world apart from the glitzy sets, big-name stars and lavish productions of Bollywood.

For 10 years, Nasir has made films with local actors and almost no equipment, often on a budget of a little more than $1,000. Many are parodies of Bollywood hits. His latest though is a parody of Hollywood’s Superman.
