Nana Patekar agrees that he fights with everyone, but maintains that he has no enemies. “I had fights…arguments with Anees Bazmee but it doesn’t last longer. Anees is a good director. It was nice, amazing experience working with him. I fight with everyone but I don’t have any enemies. There is no enmity with anyone,” Nana told reporters at the trailer launch of `Welcome Back’, directed by Bazmee.
“I have only one problem (with Anees). He always gives script at the last (moment). He gives late in the night…he wants us to do the scene next day,” Nana said. To this, Bazmee said, “It is good when an actor is involved in the project. Either convince the actor or get convinced (if you have a fight). If an actor doesn’t give his or her suggestion, advice, then I ask if the actor is interested in doing the film or not…the reaction from actor is positive,” Anees said.
When Anil Kapoor was asked if it is true that Nana is short-tempered, Nana interrupted and said, “We just had a fight ten minutes back on how to present this event.” But Anil is full of praise for him. “I have worked with lot of big actors. I feel that both, nationally and internationally, Nana is the best co-star.”
‘Welcome Back’, a comedy, is a sequel of the 2007 film ‘Welcome’, with Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Paresh Rawal reprising their roles. John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Nasseruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia are the new additions. The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on September 4.
