Satyajit Padhye - Early Life

Early Life

Padhye was born on May 5, 1983 in Mumbai, India to Ramdas Padhye and his wife, Aparna. His brother Parikshit is also a puppeteer and ventriloquist. His mother appeared on national television in the 80s and 90s. She has a Masters degree in Maharathi literature and is herself a puppeteer and ventriloquist in skits with her husband.

His father Ramdas Padhye, included his son in various stage shows and plays, and his grandfather was Y. K. Padhye, a pioneering ventriloquist who popularised this form of entertainment in India. Ramdas took over from him and brought the art to the masses through television.

Satyajit is from R.A. Podar College of Commerce and Economics, Matunga where he took part in the Youth Festival and Malhar. He has won several prizes in inter-collegiate events using his skills. He made a Professional Quality Puppet called “Rapster” as Mascot for RAPPORT 2003, an annual college festival which was the anchor for various events in the festival. Padhye began working life as a Chartered Accountant.

However, Satyajit honed his skills of puppetry and ventriloquism for five years before giving his first solo performance.
