Nana Patekar Says Anil Kapoor Admitted He Got Him Removed From Parinda: 'Nana Ko Kyun Star Banau?' – DellyRanks


Parinda released in 1989.


Nana Patekar was supposed to play Jackie Shroff’s role, Anil Kapoor’s elder brother, in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s 1989 film Parinda.

Nana Patekar was supposed to play Jackie Shroff’s role, Anil Kapoor’s elder brother, in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s 1989 film Parinda. In an interview with The Lallantop, Nana explained why he was dropped.

He said, “I was initially going to do Jackie’s role. Naseer (Naseeruddin Shah) was supposed to play Anna (the part eventually played by Nana). Then Naseer backed out. Anil and I did a lot of rehearsals. I prepared for six months. I recently asked Anil, ‘You asked Vinod to drop me from the film?’ He said, ‘I thought Nana ko kyu star banau main (why should I make Nana the star)? It was obvious that you’d become a star had you played Jackie’s part.’ I told him, ‘Didn’t I tell you that whatever role you give me, I’d become the star anyway. Nobody would look at you’.”

However, things are fine between Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar now. However, Nana alleges that during that period, Anil, who was a star, requested Vinod to remove Nana from the film. Nana left on his own. Three to four months later, Vinod approached Nana and asked if he would play Anna. “All’s well between Anil and me these days. But at that time, he was a star. He asked Vinod to drop me from the film and he did. I also walked out. Three-four months later, Vinod came to me. He asked me if I’d play Anna. I first felt angry, then I agreed. He then said he’d pay me whatever my market rate is. I said obviously, that you will, you’re not doing me a favour. I just said I’ll rewrite my part,” Nana said.

Madhuri Dixit starred alongside Nana in Parinda. After that, Vidhu Vinod Chopra directed Anil Kapoor in the romantic musical 1942: A Love Story in 1994. Nana and Anil reunited as partners in crime in Anees Bazmee’s Welcome franchise in 2007 and 2015. Nana’s next projects include Anil Sharma’s Journey and Prakash Jha’s web series, Laal Batti.
