He is the darling of marathi drama with the amazing ability to bring laughter to the mass regardless of age or religion. I got a chance to meet him at the Ganesh festival organized by the Tokyo marathi mandal. Initially, we were hesitant to go there as we knew the place would be crowded and also there wont be much food available and the total fee of 5000 Yen for an evening looked on the higher side.
But finally, i and my brother`s family decided to go there and we were really fortunate to meet the man who with his supreme acting skills has been a leading entertainer in marathi drama & films for the past 20 years. For the first time outside India, i felt proud to be an Indian and especially a Maharashtrian!
