It all started from his childhood. Mr. Vidyadhar Pathare who is the Gem of IRIS Productions.
His father was an editor while his uncle was a cameraman. Superstars like Nirupama Roy, Rajkumar and others often visited his house. All this was very attractive. At the age of 7 he started accompanying his father at Editing studios (Bombay Film Lab), trial screenings. In no time he got hooked to all this and developed a liking for the film industry. His hobby soon turned into his profession. He became a full-fledged editor at the age of 20. Within 4 years, he turned into a producer at 24.
In 1989, as a producer his first creation was 'Aakaar’, a Marathi tele-serial. Aakaar was directed by renowned director B. P. Singh and had 26 well known Marathi actors like Shivaji Satam, Mahesh Manjrekar, Sachin Khedekar, Deepak Shirke to name a few. With this began the journey of IRIS Production. This was just the beginning and then was no looking back.
