- The Volatile Personality of Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar
Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar was supremely talented yet he had a very unpredictable & volatile personality which is also evident from the trailer & teasers of the film! His most successful roles had a sense of aggression in them, whether it was of Sambhaji Raje or of ‘Lalya’ from the play ‘Ashrunchi Jhali Phule’! He was also suffering from alcoholism in a phase of his life. Such unpredictable personality makes for exciting material for a biopic!
- The Complex Love life of Dr. Ghanekar!
Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar was already married to a doctor even before he entered the Marathi theatre fraternity. But later in his life he fell in love with a much younger woman than him! Who was that woman? And what was her equation with the star? What was it about her that inspired the star so much? All of that can be known after watching the film!
- The Golden Period of Marathi Theatre!
Those were the times when the Marathi society’s biggest obsession was nothing but Marathi theatre! Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar recreated that craze among the audiences for Marathi theatre. Moreover there were so many talented actors like Prabhakar Panshikar, Dr. Lagoo & others all functioning at same time as Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar. The audiences truly get an opportunity to relive that era through ‘Ani..Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar’!
- Honest Depiction of a Star’s Life!
Writer-director Abhijeet Deshpande has clearly specified from the very beginning that this film won’t be glorifying Dr. Ghanekar. It believes in honest depiction of his life. The director believes that the audiences relate to a person who is flawed. A flawed personality makes that character more human beyond the glorious image that a star has in the limelight! So we can say that the film is interested in the human side of the star!
- Vaidehi Parshurami as the Surprise Package!
Vaidehi Parshurami plays a very significant role in the film, a much younger girl than Dr. Ghanekar who falls in love with him & is also a huge fan of him.

Vaidehi Parshurami previously seen in few films promises to be the surprise package of ‘Ani..Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar’!
