Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Ac­tor Nana Patekar (right) agrees that he fights with ev­ery­one, but main­tains that he has no en­e­mies. Patekar, 64, who will be seen next in Anees Bazmee’s di­rec­to­rial, said that he even fought with the di­rec­tor but their ar­gu­ments did not last for long. “I had fights and ar­gu­ments with Anees Bazmee but it doesn’t last for long. Anees is a good di­rec­tor. It was nice, amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with him,” he said.

“I fight with ev­ery­one but I don’t have any en­e­mies. There is no en­mity with any­one,” Patekar said at the trailer launch of the film re­cently.

The Ab Tak Ch­hap­pan ac­tor added that Bazmee pro­vides script to his ac­tors at the very last mo­ment. “I have only one prob­lem (with Anees). He al­ways gives the script at the last (mo­ment). He gives it late in the night ... He wants us to do the scene next day,” he said.

The com­edy drama, a se­quel to the 2007 hit Welcome, also stars Anil Kapoor, John Abra­ham, Shruti Haasan, Naseerud­din Shah and Dim­ple Ka­pa­dia.

When Anil was asked at the launch if it is true that Patekar is short-tem­pered, the Marathi star in­ter­rupted and joked, “We just had a fight 10 min­utes back on how to present this event.”

Anil was all praise for Patekar. “I have worked with a lot of big ac­tors. I feel that both, na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, Nana is the best co-star.”

The se­quel is sched­uled for a world­wide re­lease on Septem­ber 4.
