Actors Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher and Manoj Bajpayee were among those who expressed condolences on social media. Bajpayee, who worked with him in Aiyaary (2018), posted, “Indian cinema has lost a gem of an actor.”

Popular in both Marathi and Hindi films, Gokhale received the National Film Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of a distressed old man struggling to pay for his wife’s medical expenses in Gajendra Ahire’s Marathi film, Ishti’ (2013). . And he was first-class as the confidante of an angry stage legend in director Mahesh Manjrekar’s ‘Natsamrat’ (2016). Gokhale also received the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 2011 for his contribution on stage.

Actor-director Amol Palekar, who collaborated with her in the musical ‘Thoda Sa Rumani Ho Jaye’ (1990), said, “I especially remember her performance in the play Barrister. It is a landmark performance in Marathi theatre. The generations to come should learn from this. However, the theater did not provide him with roles that were worth his salt. His acting style, or rather acting less, was so effective and good, few can achieve with dignity unfortunately, and the film industry hasn’t given them their due, especially the Marathi film industry.”

Versatility was his calling card. The actor lent grace and added depth to the characters he played. Gokhale’s expressive eyes and commanding voice – he was also a voice coach later – were fundamental to the creation of the socially conservative Guru, who is liberal at heart but bound by tradition in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ Huh. And yet, in ‘Thoda Sa Romantici…’ he played the district collector of a remote town who is the object of the secret attraction of an unassuming young lady (Anita Kanwar), equally so.

He also acted in a slew of television serials: from ‘Katha Sagar’ and ‘Udaan’ during the DD monopoly days of the 1980s to ‘Viriddh’ and ‘Kuch Apne Kuch Pare’ in recent decades.

The actor is survived by his wife Vrushali and their two daughters.
