Sion Koliwada, Mumbai

4y ago


On May 31, when police and demolition workers moved in to clear parts of Sion Koliwada, a one-storey patch of tenement houses in Mumbai’s suburbs, Prathamesh Shivkar, a 21-year-old IT student raised in the slum, was ready with his video camera. Prathamesh wasn’t just shooting evidence to put on YouTube or show in court. He was shooting a scene for a film, complete with narration, animation and local music; a little sliver of Bollywood in one of the Indian movie city’s less glamorous quarters.
