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.”
