The remarkable global journey of an IFS officer, Dr. Dnyaneshwar Mulay, is filmed as Passport Man of India, gypsy returns, which is a sequel to the film ‘Gypsy’, a film that received wide recognition in India and abroad. The film won the best inspirational film award at the 5th Hongkong international youth film festival. The film is produced by Neha S Anchan and Dr. SV Anchan, chairman, Safesea Group, co-sponsored by Tata Consultancy Services, and directed by Dhananjay Bhawalekar.

Dr. Mulay studied in a small residential school. His entire schooling happened in the Marathi language. At that time, there were no coaching centers or appropriate books available in Kolhapur. He wrote a letter to the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shankarrao Chavan. He wrote, “Dear Sir, I want to do the Civil Service examination, there are no books in Kolhapur.” Chief Minister, surprisingly then, called the chairman of his college, who in turn called the principal of the college. “The principal arranged all the books and said that henceforth, don’t write to the chief minister, tell me what you want,”
