…and no one knew Dilip Prabhakar;  How did Sanjay Dutt make this mistake?

Mumbai Actor Dilip Prabhawalkar is one of the most versatile actors. Dilip Prabhawalkar has made a special place for himself in every field, whether drama, film or serial. Not only in acting but also in writing, Prabhalkar has carved a niche for himself. Today is Dilip Prabalkar’s 77th birthday.

Dilip Prabhawalkar has made a name for himself not only in Marathi but also in Hindi cinema. He played the role of Mahatma Gandhi in the movie ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’ and was a hit. He was especially appreciated for this role.

When the shooting of the film started, Dilip Prabhavalkar used to go to the sets early and wear Mahatma Gandhi’s make-up on the sets. Sanjay Dutt played the lead role in this film. Sanjay always saw Prabhakaran as Gandhiji but one day Prabhakaran was not in Gandhiji’s makeup. Sanjay came on the set and he started looking at Prabhavalkar with strange eyes and then he started staring at him, then he realized that it was Dilip Prabhavalkar. Sanjay could not even recognize Dilip Prabhavalkar in the role of Gandhiji because he was so busy.

 

Dileep played not one but six roles in the play ‘Haswafasvi’. ‘Chimanrao’, played by Prabhaalkar, is still in the minds of many people. The roles he has played so far have left a place in the minds of the audience. Nandu in Chaukat Raja, Tatya Vinchu in Japatlela, Aaba in Gangadhar Tipre became memorable in this.
