The well-known actor Marathi Prasad Jawade It's in cloud nine these days.

I also saw the film director Marathi Jabbar Patel The film Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar in which Mammootty had acted. All I know before doing this series about Ambedkar sahab is that he wrote the constitution, it was the mahanayak, who was fighting for the rights of other castes. But today I have realized that his work is so great that it is beyond our imagination. I feel blessed to play an iconic character like Dr. BR Ambedkar.

Ask Prasad how the performance happened and he shares: “This all started when I was doing theater for a theater group in a city 30 kilometers from Pune. This is what I am talking about when I was very young. Shortly after completing my high school, I realized that I had to do something alone in the theater, although I did my XII class in the Science course and then an Information Technology diploma. There was a time when I also wanted to study law, but that could not happen because I was also doing theater. But, fortunately, due to Baba Sahab Bhimrao Ambedkar ji, today I can play a role in which I can read all things related to the law. And very soon, as part of my character's research work, I will go to a law school to study the constitution of India of Baba Sahab Bhimrao Ambedkar ji. In this way, I will study Law indirectly.

He adds: “My acting journey began when I participated in a Maharashtracha Superstar talent hunting program. I was among the 12 best contestants and this competition changed everything for me. After this reality show, I auditioned for movies and series and made four marathi series, of which I also played the role of a blind man in a series. This was one of the most challenging roles for me because I had to move blindfolded for almost two months. ”

Having Bollywood aspirations, Prasad says he also continues to audition for movies. “Since I arrived in this field, I just want to do the best job possible. I never wanted to be a hero because I was never the filmy-filmy guy. I always wanted to do a good and meaningful job. I also played a small role in Chhichhore, ”he says.
