Death 1911

Kirloskar Natak Mandli badly needed a new singer-actor after the death of Bhaurao Kolhatkar.

Once, Nanasaheb Joglekar, who was then studying in Lokmanya Tilak’s law classes, went to Bhaurao to inquire about his health.

Bhaurao asked Nanasaheb to sing and then approved of his singing. He also got Tilak’s nod, too. Joglekar joined Kirloskar’s drama company, but was all the time aware that he was stepping into the shoes of an actor as great as Kolhatkar.

Joglekar sang in a sweet, high voice. Once he, was offered partnership of the Company, he added to the Company’s name and fame by different achievements.

He built the Kirloskar theater, started the magzine ‘Rangabhoomi’ (the stage) and set up a dramatic museum. He enlightened many old plays with his singing.

The role of Dhairyadhar in the play ‘Manapaman’ was his forte as a fully developed singer-actor. Nanasaheb Joglekar simply immortalized the role forever.
