Dadasaheb Phalke is considered as the predecessor of all the major Film Makers in Bollywood. He was born in Nasik in India. After the completion of his school studies, he learnt photography and printing. His keen interest in magic inspired to learn the tricks of magic. He began his career as a photographer in Godhra. He had to leave his occupation following the demise of his wife and child. Then, he joined Archeological Survey of India to serve as a draftsman. Not satisfied with the job, he again turned for the business of printing. He acquired specialization in Oleography and Lithography. He also visited Germany to learn the recent progress in the field of machinery and technology that concerns filming.

Due to some dispute with the business partners he devoted all of his interests to moving pictures. His interest in the moving pictures was inspired after he saw The Life of Christ, a silent movie.

The release of Raja Harishchandra in the year of 1912 is the result of this inspiration. Thus the credit of being the maker of the first feature film in India is attributed to Dadasaheb Phalke.
The success of this film led Dadasaheb Phalke to proceed further to make several films.

Shortly after this, Dadasaheb Phalke formed Hindustan Films, a film company. He had five partners in this affair. He also set up a model studio with the purpose of training the actors and the technicians. In the year of 1920, Phalke Dadasaheb officially resigned from Hindustan Films and also from the world of cinema. Then followed the publication of his much acclaimed play, `Rangbhoomi`. With the change of time and the advancement of technology, the sound films came into existence and gained immense popularity causing the extinction of the silent films. `Gangavataran` was the last film that Phalke made in the tear of 1938. before that he has already made films like Shri Krishna Janma, Kaliya Mardan and Setu Bandhan that speak much About Bollywood. The Dadasaheb Phalke Award is distributed in his honor.
