This heart-felt piece profiles Ashok Aswani, a 63-year-old doctor who decided to dress up as Charlie Chaplin upon watching Chaplin’s classic film, “Gold Rush” in 1973. Based in Adipur, a small town in Gujarat, India, Aswani formed a Charlie Circle fan club. Every year, young and old men alike impersonate Chaplin and take on the city’s streets to celebrate Chaplin’s birthday on April 16.
