Nana and Priyadarshan are great friends and respect each other a lot. So Nana made sure that he took personal care of his director friend when he fell sick.
Reportedly, the crew was shooting for the film ‘Malamaal Weekly 2’ in Wai, but the climatic conditions did not suit Priyadarshan, and he fell ill. Despite the efforts on the part of the production to take care of him, it was Nana who took the responsibility to nurse him personally. He even went to Sangli to get medicines to cure Priyadarshan.
Because of the immense respect he has for Priyadarshan, his efforts paid off, and the director soon recovered. Shooting for the film has resumed.
‘Malamaal Weekly 2’ stars Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Rajpal Yadav, Shreyas Talpade, Nana Patekar, Shakti Kapoor and Asrani.
