Sheikh Shafique – the Superman of Malegaon – the fighter of local crime, social ills, unhealthy practices (including tobacco chewing) died today morning of mouth-cancer due to tobacco chewing, just a day after the Malegaon premiere of his film yesterday. A death most poetic, of a Superhero most odd. Rest in peace.

  3. […] Shafique Shaikh, the male lead of the movie ‘Malegaon ka Superman’ died of throat cancer last September but he will always be remembered for his role. The reason why I say this is only because when you watch this documentary what will hold you in its captivity is the depiction of each and every small emotion of the actors and the makers of the movie.

Also the way the makers and the other cast take care of him time and again brings tears into my eyes. Shafique desired to do any Amitabh Bachchanji kind of role at least once in his life and that was what he considered the greatest thing in his life, something that surprises me in this materialistic world.

    Is it true that the hero died or are we talking figuratively as in the film died, plz advise.
    PS: i do realize that the film is still alive because of the success of its documentary, but i am not sure if the hero really died or was it the obituary of the movie. The article was written long ago.
