The makers of Aani... Dr Kashinath Ghanekar have revealed that actor Sumeet Raghvan will play veteran actor Dr Shriram Lagoo in the film. Directed by Abhijeet Deshpande, the film is a biopic on the legendary Marathi theatre and film actor Dr Kashinath Ghanekar, whose character will be essayed by Subodh Bhave. 

The poster has Raghvan dressed as Lagoo. The make-up artist has done as much as possible to ensure the Bucket List (2018) actor resembles Lagoo. Many might argue that Raghvan doesn’t exactly look like the veteran actor. However, not many know how Lagoo looked in his younger days. Another challenge for the young actor will be to match Lagoo’s heavy, strong voice. 

Contemporaries in theatre and films, Lagoo and Ghanekar often shared the stage. Besides being a famed actor, Ghanekar was also a dental surgeon. Interestingly, Lagoo is also an ENT (Ear Nose Throat) surgeon. 

Aani... Dr Kashinath Ghanekar will be released during Diwali on 7 November.
