Bhagwan started with stunt films directed by G.P. Pawar.

He co-directed his first feature film, Bahadur Kisan, with Pawar in 1938 before becoming a producer with Jagriti Pictures and Bhagwan Art Productions. He became the owner of Jagriti Studios in 1947. Bhagwan reached the pinnacle of his career with Albela. In this film he played the role of a simpleton. His dance number, `Shola Jo Bhadke` became a rage. The dance style he created was followed by many stars after him, including Amitabh Bachchan. From 1938 to 1949 he had directed low budget stunt and action films.
