Nilu Phule, Marathi actor, dies at the age of 80

Nilu Phule, veteran Marathi film and stage actor passed away on 13th July 2009. One of the finest Marathi actors, Nilu Phule succumbed to cancer of the oesophagus.

A versatile artiste, Phule had acted in around 130 films, including some Hindi movies, and a number of Marathi plays.

I remember watching few of his movies as a child... the days when we relied on Doordarshan for our entertainment dose. He left a lasting impression with his inimitable style and strong presence in every movie he was a part of. His movie scenes and dialogues are simply superb. Check out this video.

This demise is a huge loss to the Marathi film industry and theatre. I offer my condolences to Nilu Phule’s family.
