Talking about Ramchandra Dhumal, film distributor Shekhar Naik told Marathi Daily, “Uncle Dhumal never thought about how long his role is in the film, how much honorarium he will get. In 2007, in ‘Urus’ he had a small role in the film. Uncle Dhumal came to Alibag from Pune. No complaints. Since then, I know him …His roles in ‘Jai Shankar’, ‘Mhais’ were also not very big. But uncle is always good at work.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan starrer Sacred Games went on to become one of the most loved digital dramas on the streaming giant, Netflix. The two-season drama also featured Pankaj Tripathi, Surveen Chawla, Kubbra Sait and Kalki Koechlin in lead roles.
We pray that Ramchandra Dhumal’s soul rests in peace!
