Jagannath turns into Aayudh Bhanushali’s teacher on the sets of &TV’s Ek Mahanayak – Dr. B. R. Ambedkar


There is nothing like the bond between a father and a son, which is both nurturing and inspiring. Such was a bond that Dr. B. R Ambedkar shared with his father, which one can see brought out strongly on-screen in Ek Mahanayak – Dr. B.R Ambedkar on &TV.  Interestingly, this on-screen bond between the father-son duo, actor Jagannath Nivangune (Ramji Sakpal) and Aayudh Bhanushali (young Babasaheb) is also evident off-screen, while shooting. The duo has developed a strong bond with each other, so much so that that their off-screen chemistry brings out the best from them on the screen. 
Despite being just a few months into the shoot of the show, Aayudh seems to have developed an extremely close bond with all his co-actors. While there seems to be a natural maternal connection between Aayudh and his on-screen mother, Neha Joshi, the young kid has also developed a fondness and close bond with his onscreen father, Jagannath. Quite often the latter uses his spare time to bond with his young co-star by either helping him in his studies or by engaging him with a few games.  Be it playing a game of ludo or understanding the depths of Babasaheb’s character, Jagannath has proactively supported Aayudh on the set. 






“Being a parent myself, I often develop a fond relation with kids, and Aayudh being such an enthusiastic and chirpy kid, it’s difficult to not be friends with him. With the on-screen portrayal of Babasaheb’s father, the bond with Aayudh has in a way transcended to a natural fatherly instinct. I am extremely protective about him and always make it a point to spend considerable time teaching him a thing or two or play with him during breaks,” says the actor. 


Adding further, Jagannath Nivangune said, “Babasaheb’s father, Ramji Sakpal was a big influence in his son’s life. His support and concern for him during all his hardships was irreplaceable and he was firm and committed to the betterment of his children. For Babasaheb, losing his father was quite a setback but that did not let him deter from achieving his goals. Incidentally, Babasaheb’s father's death anniversary falls on February 2nd and both me and Aayudh spoke about how Ramji helped to shape his son Babasaheb's future. It is a different strength and essence that this relation brings to Ambedkar’s story and it’s been my endeavour is to present that story in its true and authentic form. I and Aayudh share a strong paternal bond and I do believe that this very our bond has really helped us through in bringing alive the true essence of Babasaheb’s connection with his father on screen.”  
In the upcoming episode, the viewers will see injured young Ambedkar falling into a deep pit while playing with a jeweller’s son. Incapable of walking, Ambedkar is unable to appear for his exams. Despite being asked to rest, a determined Ambedkar asks his father to cure his wound and tells everyone that he will appear for the exam. But with this injury, how will he manage to pass his exams?
