When we think of Saint Tukaram, the image of the actor Chinmay Mandlekar immediately springs to our mind and the image is so strong that recently Chinmay was invited to one of the family functions in the descendants of Saint Tukaram and the invitation was addressed to Chinmay as Hari Bhakti Parayan and Chinmay himself is immersed on Hari Bhakti Parayan while on the sets and so engrossed is he that even while he is not giving a shot , he is still chanting Hari Bhakti Paraayan. He recollects an incident in Tukaram’s life when a villager in Dehu, Sant Teli’s son is on deathbed and his wife comes to seek help from Saint Tukaram who decides to chant the hymns of Lord Vithoba till the son recovers and his devotion to Lord fructifies and the sick son recovers. Chinmay further adds that the shooting of this sequence took 10 days and he was engrossed in Hari Bhakti Parayan 7 to 8 hours a day and I got a divine faith in the Lord. The director Sangeet Kulkarni has taken a lot of pains while shooting the showand he says that no compromises have been made while shooting the show.
