Nana Patekar to make a biopic on Baba Amte

Popular Bollywood actor Nana Patekar will once again don the hat of a director as he gets ready to director a film on social worker Baba Amte. The actor will also be seen in the lead role in the film. The film will also focus Prakash Amte, Baba’s son.
Nana Patekar is popular for his acting and dialogue delivery. He isn’t a director so to say. But, he has directed a film before, way back in 1991. The film he directed was Prahaar: The Final Attack.
The film will be made in three languages – Hindi, Marathi and English. Nana Patekar, said while speaking about the film that he will be playing the role of both Baba Amte and his son Prakash.
Baba Amte was an out of the world social worker, who devoted his entire life for the rehabilitation of leprosy patients. As far as the film is concerned, the actor said that he was offered the role of Baba Amte himself in a Marathi film. However, he didn’t accept the role.
