We know that Mani Ratnam has roped in Ranbir Kapoor for his next film, Azaan. Now we hear that Ratnam wanted to cast Nana Patekar in a pivotal role as well. In fact, our source insists that Patekar was even paid a signing amount.
So what went wrong? It seems when Mani-sir gave Patekar a narration, he ended up getting a ‘lesson’ in filmmaking! Mani-sir simply left.
We’re not surprised that Patekar was dropped from the credits. Patekar was untraceable and so was Mani-sir but a spokesperson of the latter said, “I don’t know who’s been spreading such rumours.”
