Nana Patekar and surprises go hand in hand. The passionate actor
is yet to start his second directorial venture (a
generation-challenged love story for which he wants Rani Mukherjee
in the female lead).
But he's busy with various acting assignments, the latest being
a Raj Kumar Santoshi production to be directed by Rakesh Sarang.
The film, a comedy entitled Horn Ok Please will feature
the volatile Nana as a truck driver.
"It's an out-and-out comedy," says a source from the film. "Nana
Patekar excels in comedy. He was the first and last choice for the
Raj Santoshi who's busy with the post-production work for Halla
Bol (featuring Ajay Devgan and Vidya Balan) and the pre-production
work on his Ramayan epic (featuring Ajay Devgan as Rama, Kajol as
Sita , Riteish Deshmukh as Laxman and Prakash Raj as Ravan) is
determined to give outside directors a chance.
Rakesh Sarang who will direct Horn Ok Please has done
commendable work on television so far. This would be his first
feature film and a road movie at that.
