He has played lead roles in many a Marathi movie [1] and supporting roles in Hindi films. His portrayal of Sanjay Dutt's sidekick, "Dedh Phutiya" (lit. One and a half-footer, referring to the short stature of his character) in the popular Hindi film Vaastav: The Reality was appreciated by critics and audiences alike. His on-screen portrayal of a simple underdog, son of the soil guy next door remains his most characteristic and endearing feature in most of his films as well as his real life. Together with Siddharth Jadhav, he has teamed up in many a hit Marathi movie forming one of the most successful and hilarious pairs in contemporary Marathi cinema.

Now he lives in Powai, Mumbai, India with his wife and his son Aryan S. Narvekar, who recently made his debut with the Marathi film Bokya Satbande.[2]

He is known for his cynical and loud comments in films.
