During that period of struggle Mr. Sudhir Bhat of Suyog Productions, cast him into a lead role in his comedy drama "Bramhachari". That was what gave birth to his devotion and dedication to the world of marathi theater & entertainment. He got his first break into films through the film "Pudhcha Paul" by Producer Mr Vinay Nevalkar which was directed by Mr Raj Dutt and thus marked his first entry into the world of Marathi films, where his performance and name reached to a larger audience, further stabilising his presence in the acting arena.
