Two weeks on the bridge.
He has acted in 125 Hindi movies, 95 serials, 26 stage plays and 45 commercials. Such a long career as an actor, working in a prestigious position in a company like ‘Indian Oil’, the journey to an important position in the army… he has lived such a colorful and multifaceted life. When asked what the most memorable moment of his life is, he says, “I’ll never forget the two weeks I spent on the bridge.” Achyut Potdar is from Indore. Pu. Who came to Indore for two days of work at that time. l Deshpande had landed at his house. ‘They came for two days, but they stayed for two weeks. I got up at five in the morning and went to bed at eleven at night. Every moment of their partnership was something to behold. Saraswati used to dance on her tongue. very simple man In fact, Pul loved non-vegetarian food, but for two weeks at our home in Indore, he received simple vegetarian food. He never complained. He completed the play ‘Tujhe Aahe Tujpashi’ in our house during those two weeks. I still remember those moments,’ says Potdar.
according to my schedule
Govinda, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn, who are considered the leaders of Hindi cinema today, were emerging as young actors at the time. At the time, it was an everyday occurrence for artists like Govinda to be late on set, but we had never been struck by such flirtations from these artists, says Potdar. I have nothing to do with how late the hero of the movie is. He used to make it clear that he would call me only when he had a chance with him. So I never had to wait. Congregations like Akshay and Ajay have always respected me. Even if an artist like Akshay, who doesn’t even look at the ARV script, knows that I have a scene with him, I used to read the script and prepare it first. All of them have worked very hard during that time. Ajay didn’t even have a handsome face like Hero’s, but he has made himself by watching and learning the performances of other actors on set and that’s how he survives today, he says.
Sometimes in a single dialogue, sometimes just in a frame… but it also shows… Some of those faces have been experienced by the Hindi film industry as character actors. Every time these artists, away from publicity, come to light in just a few seconds of scenes from an advertisement or a movie, how many days have passed since then? In such words, the joy of their meeting comes out of our mouths. Veteran actor Achyut Potdar is one such Marathi face who has appeared in Hindi movies and series. Appa i.e. Achyut Potdar who became a household name of ‘Mazha Hoshil Na’ series, approaching 90 years old, still remembers everything from the theater to his IPL advertisements that have been released during a long time. He acted with love, not with the lure of money-fame, so he is ‘satisfied’, in such words he feels the joy of his life with others.
He had played the father of actor Jackie Shroff in the 1992 film ‘Angar’. The artist still remembers the face of a father with a hot head, an unemployed Jaggu, willing to fight against injustice, and his father, annoyed by his tricks, saying four words to his son in the same voice. snore In ‘Three Idiots’, Aamir Khan is described as a machine by a teacher who says ‘Kehna kya chante ho..’. Acting is a coincidence in his life. ‘My father died when I was eleven years old. So he had nothing. The goal was to get a job studying. But even during that time, he played the study bag, he never gave a damn,’ he says.
I never acted for money. At first, they didn’t even pay me. So my friend like Om Puri used to yell at me all the time. He insisted that he should be paid for his work. I’ve been part of very good movies like ‘Angar’, ‘Rangila’, ‘Parineeta’, ‘Three Idiots’. When you like your role, your presentation is great. In the end, the role doesn’t improve without the actor pouring the life out of it, he says. The shocks of failure also had to be digested. He wanted to work in Nihalani’s ‘Tamas’ series, but he was not given a role due to the influence of Marathi pronunciation. I acted in all of Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s movies, but I didn’t get a role in his only movie ‘Eklavya’ despite my wish. The role was played by Parikshit Sahni. Such things happened, but I loved swimming with the current. I did what I wanted with all my heart. Change is the only thing that leads to progress. Just as the flow changed, so did I. You should be able to swim with the current. He advises that we should be able to move forward by changing ourselves according to the situation.
From working in Hindi, I have probably understood that I am Hindi. Therefore, no one has given me many roles in Marathi, she laments. But since he was originally interested in acting, he didn’t insist that he should have money or fame or a certain role. Very satisfied, she says. At this age he has kept a detailed and well-written notebook of his role to date, some of the social work. Now my hand is shaking, so I can’t write. He has established some kind of social work in all parts of the country on behalf of writers, artists and some close friends who came into his life. He has also named his diary as ‘Samadhan’. The love received from the people, the company of the great, the service rendered to the country in the army, the permanence in the Indian Island and the work carried out in all media such as drama-film-series-advertising were pleasant and satisfying. Veteran actors like Achyut Potdar have witnessed the history of the world of film series as a whole. They experimented and created a festival. However, his feet are on the ground. Even at the age of 88, Kangana Ranaut’s film has been enthusiastically requested.
I did what I wanted with all my heart. I loved swimming with the creek. Change is the only thing that leads to progress. Just as the flow changed, so did I. You should be able to swim with the current. We must be able to move forward by changing ourselves according to the situation. Originally, acting was her hobby. Very satisfied.
Dubey and the beginning of the performance..
He says that his interest in acting was sparked by his brother-in-law Prabhakar Kibe. Prabhakar Kibe was a renowned impersonator and musician from Indore. Being in the company of him created interest throughout the song and the drama. Later, when he was in the army, many people thought that because of my personality I work in movies and plays. I loved it so I finally got a chance to work in theater there too. At the age of 44, I began my path in the field of acting, he says. The brother of actress Sulbha Deshpande worked at Indian Oil. He asked me once and took me to Pandit Satyadeva Dubey. Dubey picked me on day one. I learned from them with all my heart, I did everything with them as my guru. She used to come to Bandra in the morning from Mahim every day and clean his room. We both had three ‘AP’s. Amrish Puri, Om Puri and I… At the same time I did the play ‘Wada Chirebandi’ with Vijayabai Mehta and won Best Actor. Actor and director Amol Palekar made the movie ‘Ramanagari’ based on the life of Ram Nagarkar. It’s my first movie. The film was also produced by Palekar. After that, seeing my work in the theater, Saeed Mirzani asked me for a role in a movie. Then I worked on movies like Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Govind Nihalani, Shyam Benegal, Rajkumar Hirani. He also recalled that he has done many movies with Govind Nihalani. Of course, he was doing all these acting horse races taking care of his job at Indian Oil. Initially, I was told that those who worked for Indian Oil were not allowed to work anywhere else like this. That was the company policy… but I met the managers at that time and told them about my interest in acting. I got permission, but I never took a vacation to film. Instead, we had a five-day week. So the other two days were completely mine. During these two days, I used to plan my filming. “I was able to shoot in two days because my part wasn’t very long,” he recalled.
