Bollywood actor Nana Patekar once again surfaces headlines for slapping a fan while shooting for a movie in Varanasi. As the video goes viral on social media netizens started slamming the actor for his behaviour.
Nana Patekar was recently spotted in Varanasi shooting for his upcoming film on a street leading to the Dashashwamedh Ghat. Suddenly a fan comes from behind Nana to take a selfie with the actor. Instead of refusing for a selfie, the actor slaps the fan. Later a crew member grabs the boy by the neck and drives him out of the set.

Years after the controversial MeToo movement, Nana Patekar has yet again grabbed the attention of the people but for wrong reason. In 2018, Tanushree Dutta accused him of sexual harassment during the shoot of 2009 film Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss and this led to the beginning of the MeToo movement.
Reacting to Nana Patekar’s behaviour, a netizen wrote in Hindi, “In fact, we the common people have given the status of God to these actors and cricket players in India, so we have to be ready to get slapped and kicked by them.”
While another commented, “At the end of the 26/11 Mumbai Attack movie, this gentleman was talking as if he is the biggest patriot, but this is the reality of these artistes. Such behavior with common people is unfortunate, our real heroes are at the border, not on the film screen.”
“The man slapping a kid is the ridiculous Nana Patekar. He has gone mad due to the glare of stardom…in olden times, people who used to dance and sing for money to entertain were called scoundrels,” slammed the third user.
Nana Patekar was shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Journey’ co-starring ‘Gadar 2’ actor Utkarsh Sharma.
Nana last appeared in Vivek Agnihotri’s ‘The Vaccine War’ playing the role of the former director general of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
