Nana Patekar has signed the Hindi remake of the Bela Seshe, a Bengali family drama film directed by Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee.
Nana will be seen essaying the role of Bengali star, Soumitra Chatterjee while actress is yet to be finalized. The Hindi version will be produced by Reliance.
Nana Patekar confirms the Hindi remake of Bela Sheshe. “Yes I have been offered Shiboprasad Mukherjee’s Bela Seshe and I am playing the old guy. The moment I heard it I said yes. It’s a beautiful film. While it’s a film relevant in today’s times, but we don’t make films like that anymore because people are afraid to make these kinds of films. Unfortunately, they feel nobody will go and watch them. There are few directors who believe in their creations and that conviction has to be there otherwise it is not possible to make a film. I tell directors that they should look out for the direction in their films but as some have families to run, I tell them ‘requirement kam karo.’ Ghar toh hamara bhi tha lekin pachaas saal mein hamnein ek sau ekkis film kiye hai.”
