Badlapur is a town in Thane district, Maharashtra state, India. It is a part of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

Matheran Range[edit]

The Matheran Range starts at Haji Malang in the north-north-west, continues to Tavli in the north, and then runs south and finally terminates at Bhivpuri Road Hill. Strictly speaking, this range is not a part of the Sahyadris, but rather runs parallel to the Badlapur-Karjat railway line to its west. The Sahyadris proper run parallel to the same railway line, but to its east.[1]

In popular culture[edit]

Bollywood actors Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starred in the 2015 action thriller film Badlapur named after the city.[2]
