The Mumbai film industry has had a host of Sindhi producers, directors and financiers, but except for Govinda in lead roles, the number of male actors has not been too many. The few that have been there, were mostly in character roles, starting with
Hari Shivdasani in the 60s (related to the Sadhana – Babita sisters), and going down to the Asranis, Vivek Vaswanis and finally to Ajit Vachani, who unfortunately had an untimely death at the age of 52. In a career spanning roughly 15 years, Ajit Vachani acted in several Hindi films, starting with “Mr. India” where he played the role of Teja, one of the now legendary vilian Mogambo’s henchmen. This was followed by “
Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” where he was seen portraying a stereotype lawyer in the role of Vakil Bihari. Amongst his other notable movies was “Maine Pyar Kiya” playing the character of a business tycoon; “
Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar” where the character was that of a college principal. Coming back with Suraj Barjatiya in “Hum Aapke Hai Kaun” he was cast in a similar role – that of a professor. His last film was the Govinda starrer “Jodi No.1.” Interestingly, Vachani first appeared on the small screen before entering Bollywood in the very same year. He, however, had his acting roots in the theatre world, having been associated with both the Marathi and Gujarati stage. He was in that way fortunate, since, noticing his propensity towards acting, his family did not discourage him from taking part in stage plays even while in school. His popularity grew with his TV appearances, which commenced in 1985 with the vastly popular “
Bante Bigadte”, produced by Rakesh Chaudhury with whom Vachani had a close association right till his end, acting also in his other serials “
Bazaar” and “Aaisa Bhi Hota”. In fact, Vachani’s last serial, “Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka” had a phenomenal run, completing thousand episodes not only in Hindi but also in its Marathi and Gujarati versions. Besides working in Hindi films, Vachani had also appeared in three Sindhi films. He was a favourite of
Tarachand Barjatya, who chose to cast him in very lovable character roles in his movies. Although he was supposed to be suffering for some time before his death, his end came in supposedly slightly clouded conditions on the 25th of August 2003. He had left behind his wife Charusheela and two daughters.
