Nana Patekar to direct a love story

By Kalyani Prasad Keshri

Veteran Nana Patekar, will again don the director's hat, after two decades, for his second film, an unconventional love story of a 50-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman. "I have written a script..I may direct it any moment...I don't know exactly when. I don't think its an issue-based film. In my film, the actress would be of 24-25 years of age and the actor would be almost of 50," Nana told PTI.

The film will be a simple love story, on the story lines of Hollywood film Ryan's Daughter or Ronam Holiday. However, Nana clarified that his film is definitely not adapted or inspired from them. “I would be acting in the film. If I get a ''buddha khushad'' person like him (for the 50-year-old character) then good...or else I will only act. About the actress it's not decided.. lets see who wants to work with me. I may start the film this year or hopefully next year," Nana added.

Nana also informed that his film will also have an item song like 'Seekhle' from Munna Bhai MMBS, which will be a sensible song and will add up to become an integral part of the script. Patekar, 60-year-old actor, turned into a director with the film Prahaar: The Final Attack, starring Madhuri Dixit in 1991.

Patekar is presently, ready with his next release, Tigmanshu Dhulia's, Shagird, an action-thriller that revolves around the crime branch of Delhi Police. Nana will be seen in the role of a cop, essaying the role of ACP Hanumant Singh, which is reportedly based on late encounter specialist Rajbir Singh.

Shagird has been produced by Reliance Big Pictures and stars Rimi Sen, Zakir Hussain, Mohit Ahlawat and Anurag Kashyap as a gangster in a cameo. The film is slated to release on May 13.
