Tere Bin Laden is a spoof on Osama Bin Laden as well as a comedic satire on America’s war on terror and the realities of life after September 11th. On July 16, 2010, the film was released globally, with the exception of the United States and Pakistan. Abhishek Sharma wrote and directed this 2010 Indian satire comedy film, which was produced by Walkwater Media. Pradhuman Singh portrayed Osama bin Laden. Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive, a sequel, was released in 2016.
In his desperate attempt to immigrate to the United States, a young Pakistani reporter creates a fake Osama bin Laden video with a look-alike and sells it to television stations.
Sharma didn’t want any ‘known stars or clearly recognizable persons’ in the cast since the film wouldn’t have the ‘intended effect on viewers.’ The first person to be cast was Ali Zafar. Sharma saw his music videos and decided to cast him as a journalist because he has the ‘quirkiness’ and ‘wit’ required for a comedy picture.
The film crew attempted to replicate the locations, costume design, and language of Pakistan as closely as possible and reproduced the Karachi scene to do so. The film was shot in Mumbai and Hyderabad neighborhoods that resembled Karachi. Pakistan provided the costumes, Urdu hoardings, and radio sets.
The film premiered in 350 theatres in India and grossed Rupees 50 million in its first weekend. At the end of its theatrical run, the picture grossed Rupees 82.5 million (US$1.1 million). At the box office, he has been deemed an average performer.
