It was on this very day, when years ago Indian cinema lost one of its most gifted performers when the iconic actor Lakshmikant Berde passed away.
Lakshmikant Berde popularly known as 'Lakshya' is one among the few versatile and legendary actors, who have made a special place in the hearts of people. He was indeed the pride of the Indian Cinema. Known for his highly energetic slapstick performances, Lakshya has always been described as one of the best comedian stars in Marathi movies.
Lakshya initially started his career by playing small roles in Marathi Plays, he acquired his first major role in Purushottam Berde's Marathi drama 'Toor Toor', which became a super-hit and the audience loved his humorous comedy and eventually became everyone's favorite.
He has given superb performances in his movies like 'Aamhi Doghe Raja Rani', 'Hamaal De Dhamaal', 'Ashi Hi Banwa Banvi', 'Balache Baap Brahmachari', 'Eka Peksha Ek', Bhootacha Bhau', 'Thartharat', 'Zapatlela', 'Ek Hota Vidhushak' among others for which he is admired even today. More than solo films Laxmikant had done many multi-starrer films especially with Marathi popular stars like Sachin Pilgaonkar, Ashok Saraf and Mahesh Kothare. But the trio of Laxmikant Berde, Sachin Pilgaonkar and Ashok Saraf is recognized even today as the most successful trio, who gave us some memorable films in Indian cinema.
Lakshya had also acted in many Hindi movies. His Bollywood debut was with Sooraj Barjatya's film 'Maine Pyar Kiya' starring Salman Khan and Bhagyashree, after 'Maine Pyar Kiya', Laxmikant acted in films like 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun', 'Mere Sapno Ki Rani', 'Aarzoo', 'Saajan', 'Beta', 'Anari' and much more. Watching his films, the thought just automatically appears in the mind that there is just one Lakshya in the Indian cinema and why on earth he died so young!!!
Today, let us pay tribute to our beloved 'Lakshya' and on his death anniversary, www.marathidhamaal.com pays homage to this legendary actor who has made his immense contribution in the Indian Cinema and entertained the audience with his skilful performances.
