About Nana Palsikar

Nana Palsikar (1907 – 1 June 1984) was an Indian film actor, who appeared in over 80 Hindi films. He made his film debut in 1935 with Dhuwandhar, and went on to play character roles in both Hindi mainstream and arthouse films. He was also cast in small parts in a few international productions such as Maya (1966), The Guru (1969), and Gandhi (1982).

Palsikar was awarded the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award twice, in 1962 and 1965. He was recognised with an award in the same category by the Bengal Film Journalists' Association in 1965.

Plasikar made his first film appearance in 1935 along with Leela Chitnis in Sumumar Chatterjee's Dhuwandhar. He appeared in two more films in this decade, Kandan and Durga (1939), both of which were produced under the Bombay Talkies production house and were the two final films directed by German director Franz Osten.

After a long break of 14 years, between which he appeared only in one film (Bahurani, 1940), he returned to the screen in Bimal Roy's 1953 picture Do Bigha Zamin (Two Acres of Land), in which he played Dhangu Maheto, alongside actors such as Balraj Sahni and Nirupa Roy. The film was a major critical success and won several national and international honours. He followed it with supporting roles in other successful films of this decade, such as V. Shantaram's Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje, Bimal Roy's Devdas, Raj Kapoor's Shree 420, Sombhu Mitra's Jagte Raho and Hrishikesh Mukherjee's Anari.
