Remember the Dewan from ‘Jolly L.L.B’? Or Indian Defence Minister Shastri from ‘Rang De Basanti’?
Actor Mohan Agashe has been entertaining us with these matchless roles on the screen. He has been marvelling us with his powerful acting in the theatre.
But Dr. Agashe is much, much more than just an acclaimed actor.
Mohan Agashe is a proud recipient of Sangeet Natak Akademi Award, a fine actor, an equally brilliant theatre artist, a qualified psychiatrist and an advisor to the Government.
Dr. Agashe, in his capacity as a qualified psychiatrist, has been a founding director of Maharashtra Institute of Mental Health apart from being an advisor to the government of Maharashtra on Mental Health and Well-Being.
In 1994, he served as the principal investigator to understand the mental health effects of the earthquake victims in Latur.
Currently, he is the principal investigator for an Indo-US joint project on Cultural Disorders of Fatigue and Weaknesses. Agashe served as the Director General of FTII, Pune from April 1997 to April 2002.
This is surely a man with several feathers in his cap.
