Description :

Born in 1947 at Bhor, Pune district, Mohan Agashe is an actor and theatre personality on the Marathi stage. An active participant in in theatre during his school day, Agashe is also a trained psychiatrist from Pune University. He started his acting career with his urbane portrayal of Nana Phadnavis in Vijay Tendulkar`s Ghashiram Kotwal. He did this role for over twenty years for Theatre Academy, Pune, of which he is a founder member. He performed in their other productions too, and introduced the Grips children`s theatre project from Germany to Pune.

Agashe has acted in art and commercial movies in Marathi, Hindi, and English, under directors like Satyajit Ray, Shyam Benegal, Gautam Ghosh, Mira Nair, and Jabbar Patel. His characterizations of the army man in Patel`s Samna in 1975 and the Brahmin in Ray`s Sadgati in 1981 demonstrate his versatility. An actor in television serials, he served as Director of the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune, and was instrumental in establishing a psychiatric unit, the Maharashtra Manasik Arogya Sanstha, at the Sassoon Hospital, Pune. From April 1997 to April 2002 he was the Director General of the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune. Unfortunately, the student association and some members of the faculty raised voice against his leadership.
