4 November,2014: When you say the name Sadashiv Amrapurkar, the image that immediately leaps to mind is that of Maharani, the sari-clad, bindi-wearing eunuch who ran the brothel in Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Sadak’ (1991). Speaking about him, an emotional Mahesh Bhatt, who helmed the film, says, “There are very few films in this country where you mention the name of the villain before that of the hero, heroine or the maker.”

64-year-old Amrapurkar passed away at about 2:40 am on Monday. He is survived by his wife Sunanda and his daughter, Rima. Bhatt further adds, “Sadashiv was a very rooted person who chose to walk his own path on his own terms. A man of the world, he was very informed and had his own unique view on complex issues. Unlike his villainous portrayals on screen, in real life he was a very gentle, refined and cultured person, a very easy actor to work with. He added that sparkle to my career and I thank him immensely. So, without him, I wouldn’t have got where Sadak took me.”
