However at the moment, performing in and even producing Marathi movies has change into a matter of satisfaction for our stars, apart from the truth that most producers and even some administrators and composers are actually experimenting—normally profitably!—with forays into Marathi motion pictures. And why is that?
Mumbai is the epicenter of the Hindi movie business and the karmabhoomi for each main star. Add friendships throughout the fraternity and we all know why many Hindi movie stars, a few of whom even have Marathi as their mother-tongues, forayed into occasional performing in Marathi movies, like Nutan (Paradh), Tanuja (Pitruroon), Nana Patekar (Natasamrat and extra) and Padmini Kolhapure (Mai, Pravaas).
