For an actor like me, getting to walk in his footsteps is nothing but an honour.’ ‘As a director, I couldn’t have wished for a greater story than that of Atalji,’ said director Ravi Jadhav.

But because the BJP was unable to secure enough support from other parties to secure a majority, he was forced to step down within 13 days.
