Irawati Bhide (Div)Kanchan Ghanekar (1983- till his death)
Kashinath Ghanekar (1940-2 March 1986) was a famous stage actor and dental surgeon  who also appeared in Marathi films in the 1960s. In addition to Marathi stage and movies, he appeared in Hindi movies such as Abhilasha opposite Nanda and Dadi Maa where he played the role of the son of Ashok Kumar and Bina Roy. He died at an early age on account of a massive heart attack while touring the rural parts of Maharashtra on a drama tour.
The role that made him a popular actor was that of Sambhaji in the play "Raigadhala Jevha Jaag Yete" (When Raigad awakens) written by the playwright, Vasant Kanetkar. Some of noted plays he acted in are - Ithe Oshalala Mrityun, Ashrunchi Jhali Fule, Garambicha Bapu, Anandi Gopal, Shitu, Tujhe Aahe Tujpashi, Sundar Mi Honar, Madhumanjiri etc. 
The film Madhuchandra (in 1967) made Ghanekar, a noted stage actor, a major Marathi film star.
He was once married to the now Irawati M. Bhide, a gynecologist and obstetrician. His first marriage was childless and ended in divorce. He subsequently married a much younger Kanchan, the daughter of Marathi actress Sulochana who has penned a biography titled "Nath Ha Maza".
