Early life[edit]

Agashe was born in Bhor, Maharashtra. He studied in B. J. Medical College, Pune for his MBBS and MD degree in Psychiatry. He later became a professor, before becoming an actor.[4] During his medical college years in Pune, he fell in love with theatre by Utpal Dutt.

Career[edit]

Medicine[edit]

Agashe served as a professor of Psychiatry at the B. J. Medical College and Sassoon Hospital in Pune.[5] Apart from his medical career, he also worked in the fields of clinical psychology and psychopharmacology. Agashe was also instrumental in establishing the Maharashtra Institute of Mental Health in 1991, a state level training and research institute in Mental Health Sciences, located in Pune, India.[6] Agashe headed the five-year study on the trauma of the 1993 Latur earthquake, initiated by the Indian Council of Medical Research.[7]

Agashe started his early career by opting to work in a government Hospital at Pune. He also chaired the organising committee meetings for the Annual National Conference of Indian Psychiatric Society held at Armed Forces Medical College, Pune. In 1998, Agashe's project to improve mental health education and service led to the formation of a new policy on mental education by the Government of Maharashtra. He has also served as an Advisor to the Government of Maharashtra on Mental Health Education and Service. Agashe is presently Principal Investigator for an Indo–US joint project on Cultural Disorders of Fatigue and Weaknesses.[citation needed]

Acting[edit]

Agashe started out as a theatre artist through Sai Paranjape's children's play.[8] His love of acting made him take time out of his busy schedule to work in plays. He started his career in acting by working in the theatre. From April 1997 to April 2002, he was the Director General of the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune.[2] He was part of a play called Zara Samjhun Ghya, which he presented for IMA's awareness drive to strength doctor-patient relationship in Pune.[9] In 2018, he was also part of a Harry Potter spoof video by Bharatiya Digital Party, where he portrayed Bumbledore.[10] He was also part of a short film #PuranaPyaar, by Gorilla Shorts.[11]
