    Makarand Deshpande: I don’t take life seriously

    A theatre enthusiast and performer par excellence Makarand Deshpande enjoys living life on his own terms. After over 40 films and innumerable plays, the actor-director-writer is hungry to experiment even more. Theatre is his first love; film acting a perpetual second choice.
