चित्रपट-नाट्यक्षेत्रात आपला ठसा उमटवला... ते बहुआयामी, बहुरूपी व्यक्तिमत्त्व होते... खरेतर अभिनयाचे विद्यापीठच होते... ते होते निळू फुले अर्थात, निळूभाऊ. त्यांच्या नावाची अकादमी पुण्यात उभी राहतेय.
"सामना', "सिंहासन', "जैत रे जैत' हे मराठी चित्रपट असोत किंवा "कुली', "सारांश', "मशाल'सारखे हिंदी चित्रपट असोत अथवा "सखाराम बाईंडर'सारखे नाटक असो. त्यांनी आपल्या प्रत्येक भूमिकेतून प्रेक्षकांच्या मनावर आपल्या अभिनयाचा ठसा उमटवला. त्यांच्या आठवणी जतन करण्यासाठी, नव्या पिढीला "अभिनय' समजण्यासाठी सेवा दलाने त्यांच्या नावाची अकादमी सुरू करण्याचा निर्णय घेतला आहे.
निळूभाऊंच्या अभिनयाचा प्रवास सेवा दलातील कलापथकापासून झाला.राष्ट्र सेवा दलाने त्यासाठी पुढाकार घेतला असून, १५ एप्रिलपासून या अकादमीचा प्रारंभ होत आहे.
