Rupesh Krishna Rao Pawar is a graduate from Mumbai University who joined an MNC immediately after his graduation. Two years later he joined ING Vyasya and worked there for another year. Today, he dresses up in khaki and works as a police constable in Mumbai.
Suffering from kidney failure, Rupesh’ father asked him whether he will join the police force and follow the family’s long tradition. Although his friends discouraged him from joining the force, Rupesh saw great value in the work and hopped on. Since then, his dedication towards his work, his honesty, and his fluency in English has been a pleasant surprise for everyone who comes across him.
Siddharth Sathyajit has made a short film about Rupesh’s phenomenal journey. The film, titled ‘Heart of a Lion’, was screened at multiple theatres across the city via the Mumbai Film Festival. In the film, Rupesh discusses the problems policemen face, the meagre salary they earn, and the levels of stress their work demands. He also says, “Police Force is very important in a society and plays a vital role. I am extremely proud of being a part of this group.”
