Reema Kagti’s upcoming film, Superboys of Malegaon, has been selected by the prestigious 2024 Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF, for a World Premiere Gala Screening to be held on September 13, 2024. TIFF is seen as the predictor of other major festivals like BAFTA, the Oscars etc., in the choice of its repertoire.

Written by Varun Grover, the executive producers of Superboys of Malegaon are Ritesh Sidhwani, Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti, and Farhan Akhtar. The film stars Adarsh Gourav, Vineet Kumar Singh, and Shashank Arora.

The film, Superboys of Malegaon is a film based on the life of Nasir Shaikh, an amateur filmmaker from the town of Malegaon. The residents of the town look to Bollywood cinema for a much needed escape from daily drudgery. Nasir gets inspired to make a film for the people of Malegaon, by the people of Malegaon. He bands together his ragtag group of friends to bring his vision to life, thereby bringing a fresh lease of life into the town. The film is a poignant yet uplifting take on both filmmaking and friendship – and what happens when those two worlds collide.
