A video on politico Sharad Pawar made by a Pune based entrepreneur, Sahil Vidhate, has gone viral, recording over 500,000 views in 3 days. The video shows rare photographs and videos of Pawar with his family, Indian soldiers at the time he was Defence Minister, and as a young politician. It goes on to depict Pawar’s rise in politics, and how he became a national leader.
Vidhate, the Director of IT company Syska Gadget Secure, wrote and produced the video, which includes a song by Rahul Vaidya.
Vidhate says he did not expect such a massive response, adding, “I run a successful business for the last two decades and I’m not associated with any party. But, as a normal citizen, I too have been following politics and noticed that many party members are leaving the Rashtrawadi Party. I have also seen the journey of Sharad Pawar, who has fought all odds and battles to do good for the people. So, we thought of making a video and sending it across to the citizens of India, and especially Maharashtra, to let them know the actual work that has been done by him.”
Both Sharad Pawar and his daughter Supriya Sule have shared the video through social media.
