That he's an accomplished artist having had exhibitions of his nice paintings and he used to work in Bank of India before becoming an eminent actor, producer & director.
I've seen many of his movies and I really liked the 'Aam Aadmi' image he portrayed in his films that we all could relate to...
In my teenage years, his TV serial Kacchi Dhoop was one of my favourites.
Recently, I liked his movie Paheli so much that I even wrote a poem on it :-)
Twice married, he has two daughters. His first wife was Chitra and his second wife is Sandhya Gokhale.
He talks of himself as an actor by accident, a producer by compulsion and a director by choice.
If you want to know more about this 'Aam Aadmi' actor-producer-director, there is a biography at the end of this playlist that I made yesterday (24th November) on his 70th Birthday.
Happy Seeing :-) and of course, as always here are some Quotes for you to read and reflect.
These are all from my daily notes that I make from my Favourite newspaper NPPQ :-)
