Anil Kapoor got Nana Patekar out of 'Parinda', the actor revealed


Bollywood actor Nana Patekar expressed his opinion on many issues in an interview. He also narrated many stories. Similarly, he also told an incident related to the 1989 film 'Parinda', when he had to leave the film. The actor has revealed the reason behind this. According to the actor, he was first selected for the role of Jackie Shroff's elder brother in this film directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. However, he claimed that Anil Kapoor, who played an important role in the film, asked the director to cast him. Nana Patekar told in an interview to 'The Lallantop', 'Earlier Naseeruddin Shah was going to play the role of Anna, but later I played this role myself. Because Naseeruddin Shah backed out. Anil and I rehearsed a lot. I prepared for six months. I recently asked Anil whether he had asked Vinod to remove me from the film? Obviously if you play Jackie's role, you will become a star. I told Anil that whatever role you give me, I will become a star anyway. No one will look at you.'
