Nana Patekar is one Bollywood actor who has never shied away from showing his immense talent on screen. Whether comic roles, negative ones or the generic ones, he has done them all with utmost brilliance. Time and again, Nana Patekar has proved that he is one of the most versatile actors of the Indian film industry. However, when it comes to his personal life, the actor hardly opens up in public.
One of the rare occasions, when he spoke his heart out about his personal life in an interview, was when he revealed that he used to hate his first son who eventually passed away because of serious health issues. Apart from this, Nana has rarely spoken about his personal life in front of the media, which also includes inside information about his friendships in the film industry.
But another fact about the world of showbiz is that it is extremely difficult for the stars to hide any information from the paparazzi. So, here we bring some secret information about Nana Patekar’s friends in the industry who eventually turned into his enemies. Let’s get started:
1. Anurag Kashyap
Nana Patekar had an ugly scuffle with Anurag Kashyap during the shoot of ‘Shagird’. In one of the scenes, Nana Patekar had to slap Anurag Kashyap. While actors always imitate these kinds of scenes or slap their co-actor gently, Nana indeed gave a tight one to Anurag. The entire crew felt that Nana took advantage of the situation since that slap was too hard to even bring originality to the scene. Moreover, as soon as the scene was cut, Nana reportedly said, ‘Dekha kitni zor ka maara. Bohot shana samajhta hai apne aap ko!’
2. Shreyas Talpade
Buzz has it that Nana Patekar treated Shreyas like his son and was very protective of him. The two have worked together in ‘Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal’. During the shooting of the film, there was one particular scene in which Nana wanted Shreyas to rehearse in front of him. But Shreyas apparently did not want to do it at that particular moment. In order to make Shreyas do that scene, Nana shouted at him at the top of his voice and ultimately made him practice it.
3. Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone is one of the most famed and highest paid celebrities of Bollywood. Nana’s equation with Deepika turned ugly in 2009 when ‘Rajneeti’ was being shot in Bhopal. Deepika had turned to the sets of ‘Rajneeti’ to meet her then boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. But this did not go well with Nana, for unknown reasons. He started shouting and uttering abuses then and there.
4. Rishi Kapoor
Just like Nana Patekar, Rishi Kapoor is also known for his short temper. So one can very well imagine how dirty the conflict between the two must have been. The two had worked together in 1995 in the superhit ‘Hum Dono’. According to reports, during the shoot of the film, it so happened that Nana got so angry at Rishi Kapoor that he slapped him.
5. Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar has a habit of interfering in the scripts of films. Sometimes, he even gets the roles of people changed. One day, Akshay Kumar was not supposed to come for the shoot while they were working together in a film. But when Akshay Kumar had to come for the shoot all of a sudden, he was two-three hours late. So when Akshay Kumar was late, Nana started abusing him and told him that he has no time to waste. On the same day, a song for the film was also shot in which Akshay Kumar had to hit Nana Patekar. Nana alleged that Akshay hit him hard and then again started using foul language.
Do you think there’s any reality behind these rumored incidents?
