Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd. has denied paying actor Nana
Patekar Rs. 9 crores, contrary to recent tabloid reports. Says a
spokesperson from Ashtavinayak, "We have not approached Nana
Patekar for more than a year. We still do not have an appropriate
script which suits his image and there is absolutely no truth to
stories saying we have given him 9 crores for a film."
