Background

Born in a farmer's family, in a small village named saksharwadi near Satara District in Maharashtra, Sayaji completed a bachelor's degree in Arts in Marathi language, and started his career in 1978 while studying in college as a night watchman for Maharashtra Government's Irrigation Department for a meager pay of Rs. 165 per month. During his service as a watchman, he developed an interest in theatre and his passion for acting drew him to the theater and films. After his initial struggling years, he moved to Mumbai.[1]

Career

Sayaji started his acting career in 1978 with acting in Marathi one-act plays. His first Marathi film as an actor was Aboli in 1995. He did many Marathi plays, among which, his role as Sakharam Binder was highly appreciated. Other hit marathi plays were Zulva(1987), One Room Kitchen(1989) and Amchya ya gharat(1991). He acted in many Marathi movies thereafter, among which, his role as an Agricultural Minister in the movie Goshta Chhoti Dongara Evadhi was to be remembered. Hindi film actor Manoj Bajpai happened to see an article on Sayaji in Times of India and the former recommended Sayaji's name to Ram Gopal Varma.

Varma, who was at that time making the movie Shool, immediately offered the role of Bachhu Yadav to Sayaji, thus marking the latter's entry in the Bollywood. Shool gave Sayaji a decent start, however, it was a Tamil film called Barathi which made his career. Sayaji received tremendous appreciation for his acting in the said film. In spite of not speaking Tamil, Sayaji effectively played the role of Tamil Nadu's poet and writer, Subramanya Bharathi in the movie directed by Gnana Rajasekaran, and was honored with Tamil Nadu State Award for his efforts. Later on, he also acted in Tamil blockbusters like Azhagi and Dhool.[1]
