The ones who wondered if Nana Patekar will go back in his shell and the controversy surrounding Tanushree Dutta will affect his career, here's a big news for you. The actor has already started shooting for Housefull 4 starring Kriti Kharbanda, Kriti Sanon, Pooja Hegde, Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol and Riteish Deshmukh. The recent reports that suggested he was nowhere to be seen on the film's set in Jaisalmer are completely untrue and the actor has, in fact, shot for a couple of scenes for this multi-starrer already. Tanushree Dutta – Nana Patekar Row: Senior Journalist Wasim Akhter Reveals the Details About the Video That’s Going Viral on the Social Media.
As per a report in In.com Nana started shooting on October 1 with Housefull 4 cast and there was a reason for his absence all this time. According to a unit member from the sets, “While Nana flew to Jaisalmer last week, he began shooting with the cast and crew from Monday, October 1st, as he was always scheduled to do. He didn’t start shoot immediately after reaching Jaisalmer as he had to prepare for the role and do a lot of dress rehearsals which took time. He came in a couple of days earlier to get the prep in place. Nana is an actor who likes to get into the mood and character of his roles and absorb the atmosphere. Yesterday a part of the song and dance was shot on Akshay, Nana, Bobby, Ritesh and Chunky Pandey and everything was completed on time amidst tight security. Mobile phones have been strictly forbidden from the sets so that no pictures are taken.” CINTAA Agrees It’s Decision in Tanushree Dutta’s Case Was Inappropriate, but Nothing Can Be Done Now.
The actor will essay the role of a comical ghazal singer in the film. He replaced Sanjay Dutt in this movie after the Bhoomi actor apparently hiked his fees. Recently Farah Khan had posted a picture of Nana Patekar with the entire Housefull 4 team while they were on their way to Jaisalmer. Tanushree Dutta had then slammed this director cum choreographer for supporting the veteran actor despite being a woman. Though Farah didn't voice her support for the accused openly, this picture was a proof that she sided with him. Well, that's what Tanushree claims and we would like to hear it from Farah herself.
