Nana Patekar, Welcome Back Nana Patekar: I had fights and arguments with Anees Bazmee but it doesn’t last longer. Anees is a good director.

Nana Patekar agrees that he fights with everyone, but maintains that he has no enemies. Patekar, 64, who will be seen next in Anees Bazmee’s “Welcome Back”, said he even fought with the director but their arguments did not last for long. “I had fights and 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,” Patekar told reporters here at the trailer launch of the film.

The “Ab Tak Chhappan” star said Bazmee provides script to his actors at the very last moment. “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,” he said.

The comedy drama, a sequel to the 2007 hit “Welcome”, also stars Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia.


When Anil was asked if it is true that Patekar is short-tempered, the Marathi star interrupted and said, “We just had a fight ten minutes back on how to present this event.” But Anil is all 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” is scheduled for a worldwide release on September 4.

    May be he a short tempered actor but his acting talents are perfect beyond words. Hardly there is any other actor in his cl whose performance can match his acting. He is short tempered probably when, on the floor of shooting any scene being directed may not be satisfying him . In his personal life and outside studios and shooting ,he does not appear so.
