Vikram Gokhle and some dear ones that are close and known ..they came to us in our lives .. they played their parts and left the stage empty forlorn and desolate by their absence.”
A doyen of Marathi stage and Indian cinema. The master of the dramatic pause and the grandmaster of dialogue delivery…. #VikramGokhale is no more. Watching him on stage had life lessons.
Rest in peace.
