Sharad Ponkshe was fighting the life threatening disease of cancer from December last year. Being one of the very respected actors in the industry, he kept his illness a secret from his industry fellows to avoid sympathy. Only close family and friends knew about the fight he was going through. Rajesh Deshpande and Govind Chavan, were one of the few close members who were a part of Sharad’s struggle. Committed to produce their next play with Sharad, they held the launch of their play till Sharad recovered completely.
With the staunch support of these friends and family, Sharad emerged from this illness with a stronger spirit. The 52 year old actor, will be the lead in ‘Himalayachi Savli’ playing the role of Veer Savarkar. The actor will also be seen in the sequel of most famous TV series ‘Agnihotra’. Sharad took to Twitter to share a poster for ‘Himalayachi Savli’.
