Big Bada Boom on Disney Channel

As the holiday season approaches, children just break free and enjoy their holidays. Keeping this holiday season in mind, Disney Channel, leading children’s entertainment channel in India has come up with a new show for kids titled “Big Bada Boom”. This show will be anchored by 4 anchors. However there is a twist here. You all are use to the regular anchors. However one of the anchor is a Puppet Character called “Bumpy”. And this character will be maneuvered by Satyajit Padhye, Ventriloquist and Puppeteer who shot to fame after his performance in India’s Got Talent, a reality show.

Satyajit Padhye got interested in this art of puppetry from childhood. Satyajit Padhye is a Chartered Accountant, but is now taken up Ventriloquism and Puppetry as his career.Being son of famous Ventriloquist and Puppeteer Ramdas Padhye, Satyajit regularly use to accompany his dad in every show. Speaking more on this show Satyajit said “Doing this show is absolutely wonderful. As for the first time, I will be operating the puppet and will not be performing as a Ventriloquist.” The director of the show David Polycarp and the writer came up with the idea of using a puppet as an anchor on the show.

Satyajit said “The name of the puppet is Bumpy.Bumpy is a very cool character with lot of attitude.So children will definitely like him. He also plays lot of pranks on the show by calling different celebrities on the phone.Also the voice of this character will be given by me.In fact it was challenging to give the voice as well as operating the puppet at the same time. But I am having a blast on the sets.Everybody on the sets is enjoying working with Bumpy.”

Ramdas Padhye's Puppet in Ramgopal Verma's Phoonk 2

You must have all seen the scary Puppet Doll in the promos of Ramgopal Verma’s new film “Phoonk 2” or have wondered at the puppet operated by Aamir Khan for a T.V. commercial or have grown up watching the Bunny Rabbit munching Lijjat Papad or some of you might remember Amitabh Bachchan operating a puppet in the film Mahan way back in 1981. Well what is the common factor? Well it is Ventriloquist, Puppeteer and Puppet Maker Ramdas Padhye. Be it Bollywood or Ad-film makers, Ramdas Padhye’s name is synonymous with Ventriloquism and Puppetry for last 4 decades.And we can rightly call him the Bollywood’s Puppet Master who has designed and operated the puppets, masks or puppet props for various Bollywood and Ad-Films made in India.
Speaking more about the Puppet Doll designed for Ramgopal Verma’s new film Phoonk 2, Mr. Padhye said “I was really excited when I met Ramuji. I am a great fan of his work. Director Milind Gadagkar wanted a really scary Puppet Doll for Phoonk 2.Milindji explained to me the concept that it is not a Puppet, but a Doll. It was quite a challenge to decide the look of the Doll, as the film required the Doll to look cute, but at the same time, it should have an element of horror which should go along with the film.”

Aamir Khan learns Ventriloquism from Ramdas Padhye for Tata Sky AD

Here are the exclusive picture of Aamir Khan with me.The entire concept of the AD for Tata Sky revolves around the puppet with Aamir playing the Ventriloquist.In fact he being, a perfectionist learnt from me the nuances of Ventriloquism.He had seen my shows on T.V. when he was in school.Ventriloquism being a difficult art cannot be taught in a day or two.Hence the puppet was operated by me from below, whereas Aamir just imitated as a Ventriloquist.The concept of the AD is, T.V. has now become your puppet as due to the Active Services introduced by Tata Sky you can literally do anything with your T.V.Here is the video of Making of the Tata Sky AD, where Aamir has spoken about me

In fact Aamir has done a hairstyle just like me similar to my Doordharshan days.The nuances of the art of Ventriloquism are perfectly captured by Aamir with respect to the chemistry between the puppet and the ventriloquist.
In fact he has really given a great boost to this art of Ventriloquism and puppetry which has got a huge potential which is still not explored in Indian Entertainment industry.

Ramdas Padhye designs Barack Obama Puppet

We see Barack Obama chatting with everybody.He has come to Ghatkopar, Mumbai.The Democratic Party candidate has come to Mumbai to take the blessings of Lord Hanuman for the 2008 Presidential election so that he can be the next President of America.And yes the God has answered his called "Barack Obama is the Next President of America".But wait there is somebody who is accompanying him.It is Indian Ventriloquist, Puppeteer and Puppet-Maker “Ramdas Padhye”.Are you confused?Well, we are also confused.But when we had a close look at Illinois Senator Barack Obama, he is nothing but a lifelike Puppet which Ramdas Padhye has himself designed in his Puppet Studio. Ramdas Padhye is India’s most successful Ventriloquist, Puppeteer and Puppet-Maker who has taken India’s name on a Global level in Puppetry and Ventriloquism.

Speaking more on this he said “Since I had designed the puppets of many international celebrities like George W Bush, I got an assignment to design the puppet of Barack Obama from upcoming American Ventriloquist Doris Baker.He liked my work and asked me to design the puppet.He will be using the puppet in his stage shows as well as in a T.V. show in U.S.”When asked about the details, he said “He is an upcoming Ventriloquist and will be using the puppet in his stage shows.He is also planning to audition for a T.V. show in U.S. for which he is planning the act with my puppet.The act contains political satire on the current political scenario in U.S. He will make comments through Obama puppet on American politics.He will also comment on the political rival of Obama and the entire script will be funny.But I still don’t know any details about the act.The unique thing about this puppet is that it can be used as a Ventriloquial puppet as well as a Muppet Style of Puppet.I am really happy that an Indian Puppet Makers’ puppet will be used by an American Ventriloquist.I am really proud to be an Indian.” Ramdas Padhye has also designed puppets of international celebrities like George Bush, Bill Clinton, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and many others who are being used by leading ventriloquists and puppeteers around the world.

Amitabh Bachchan and My Puppets

I was cleaning my cupboard and I found a collection of old photos.And I remembered everything.Amitabh Bachchan was present for my show at Filmfare in 1980's.I performed my show and was sitting backstage.Amitji came along with Jayaji and met me.He appreciated my performance and told me to meet me immediately.I met him and he told me that he wanted to use my puppet in his film "Mahan", where Amitji played a Ventriloquist.So I operated the puppet from behind in the film, but it appeared to the audience as if Amitji was operating the puppet.It was great pleasure working with a superstar like Amitabh Bachchan.

Ramdas Padhye with his puppet "Ardhavatrao" along with Amitabh and Director S.Ramnathan
I have fond memories of shooting in Nepal along with Mr.Bachchan.In fact after that I had several occasions to meet him.I still remember performing at Abhishek's Birthday party when Abhishek turned 5.I am really lucky that this art of puppetry was appreciated and was used effectively by Superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
I thought of posting this, because the film "Mahan" will be aired on Set Max on 1st June,2008 at 12.00pm.So if anybody wants to catch up the film can do so.
