    6 Hindi and Marathi actor and director; born Bhagwan Abhaji Palav in Bombay, the son of a mill worker. After devoting himself to body- building, he started in the silent era with his long-term partner, Chandrarao Kadam, in G.P. Pawar-directed stunt movies. Co-directed first feature with Pawar (1938), then producer (1942) with Jagriti Pics and Bhagwan Art Prod.; eventually owner of Jagriti Studios, Chembur (1947). Success of [[Albela]] established him briefly as a major post-Independence producer. Starred as a dancer and naive simpleton in many stunt, adventure and comedy movies. Acting style associated mainly with the elaboration of a minimalist dance movement which arguably became a major behavioural influence on Hindi film audiences (e.g. [[Amitabh Bachchan|Bachchan]]’s dances, which today determine how people move on the streets in wedding or religious processions, bear the mark of Bhagwan’s influence). [[Balraj Sahni]] wrote that while ‘[[Raj Kapoor]] and [[Dilip Kumar]] are [m]uch more popular than he is, they do not enjoy the popularity among the poorer classes that Bhagwan Dada does. [The working class] sees in him their own image and what endears him to them is that he, a fellow member of the proletariat, should make a beauty like [[Geeta Bali]] fall in love with him.’ (Sahni, 1979). Since the early 70s, he has been largely relegated to cameo roles and comedy routines.
