ज्येष्ठ रंगकर्मी श्रीकांत मोघे यांच्या निधनाची बातमी अतिशय दुःखद आहे. तब्बल अर्ध्या शतकाहून जास्त काळ सिनेमा, रंगभूमी यांसारख्या माध्यमांतून त्यांनी रसिकांचं मनोरंजन केलं. त्यांच्या विविधांगी भूमिका आणि चतुरस्त्र अभिनय प्रेक्षकांच्या कायम स्मरणात राहील. भावपूर्ण श्रद्धांजली! pic.twitter.com/MWfzG6RgPY
