The sudden sad demise of Atul Abhyankar who played role of Hegdi Pradhan in Jai Malhar has left the entire Marathi entertainment world in shock. However, show must go on and this role will be played by Nakul Ghanekar for the upcoming episodes.
Hegdi Pradhan was an avatar of Lord Vishnu, and he always supported Khanderai in his political as well as personal life. While speaking about this role Nakul said, “Atul was immensely popular in this role. He was also awarded as Best Supporting actor for this serial. I will try to fulfil the expectations of the audience. This role has given me a huge responsibility. I have watched all the episodes of Jai Malhar and prepared myself for this role in a very little time. I don’t think I will be able to match Atul’s acting style, yet I am dedicating myself and hope that audience likes me in this role”
Jai Malhar is telecasted in Zee Marathi at 7 pm.
