Hemant Kadam (Baba)
( 1936 - 1998 )

Chandivali Outdoor Location would not be what it is today, without Baba Kadam’s hard work, dedication and commitment in making Chandivali Studio one of the best known film studios in Mumbai. Born on 15th May 1936 as the eldest son to Mr. Chandrarao Kadam and Krishnabai Kadam, he was fondly known as Baba at home and in the film industry. Along with his father, Baba struggled and worked relentlessly to constantly improve the shooting locations and facilities within the studio premises. Baba was a complete people’s person, who was an extremely generous, kind hearted and a loving soul. He shared a fantastic rapport with the film stars who frequented the studio as well as his co workers.

Baba Kadam had also produced and directed a Marathi film "Hiche Kay Chukla" under his production Kaushal Pictures.

We at Chandivali Studio are extremely proud and grateful to have known a man of his stature and our eternally grateful to this man for his contribution in making Chandivali Studio one of the oldest run studios. Today, we deeply miss his presence and guidance.
