Recently, a video capturing actor Nana Patekar in a heated moment on the set of his upcoming film in Varanasi has stirred up a storm on the internet. In the footage, Nana can be seen reacting strongly when a young fan attempted to take a selfie with him, prompting a swift and surprising response from the actor.
The incident occurred while Nana Patekar was filming for ‘Journey’ on a bustling street near the Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi. As a boy tried to take a selfie with him, Nana reacted by slapping the fan on the back of his head, swiftly followed by a crew member escorting the fan away from the set.
This video quickly went viral, triggering a wave of criticism on social media. Many expressed disappointment over the actor’s actions, highlighting their disillusionment with the behavior of public figures. One individual on social media expressed, “We hold actors and cricket stars in high regard in India, almost like gods, but incidents like this make us vulnerable to being treated disrespectfully by them.” Another commenter remarked, “Nana Patekar projected himself as a patriot, but this incident reflects the true behavior of these celebrities. Our real heroes are defending our borders, not on the silver screen.”
