Ganpat Patil: An Unconventional Superstar

It was a great honor to be a part of the movie “Namdar Mukhyamantri Ganpya Gawde” featuring the legendary actor Ganpat Patil. Me and my sister Aishwarya Gharat had a special role to play in it.

The movie became even closer to our heart because of Mr. Ganpat Patil’s presence. The film was also nominated for the Zee Marathi Awards.

The cinema features another marathi superstar Bharat Jadhav in the lead and has Mr. Patil playing an old generation actor who has not received the pension allotted to him by the Government of Maharashtra.

The veteran actor has acted in popular films like ''Meeth Bhakar'', ''Ram Ram Pavhana'',''Naykinicha Sajja'', ''Thoratanchi Kamala'' and ''Bola Dajiba'' and many more.

Mr. Patil was well known for his ''Nachya'' (mimic) role. He has about 60 films and 16 dramas to his credit.

Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Chitrapat Mahamandal (ABMCM) honored Ganpat Patil with ''Chitrabhushan'' award in 2006 for his contribution and service to the Marathi film industry. He was also conferred with the Zee Marathi Lifetime Achievement Award.
