Actors Ashok Saraf and Nana Patekar have proved their mettle as the most versatile actors in the film industry. Both actors are friends as well in real life.

The actor said that he pressed Ashok Saraf’s feet recently as well when they met.

Nana Patekar also remembered the times the Marathi actor extended help to him when he started his career in the film industry. The veteran actor said that he would get Rs 50 for performing in the play Hamidabaichi Kothi and Ashok Saraf would receive Rs 250. Nana Patekar remembered that they used to play card games in their free time during play. While playing the game, Ashok Saraf would deliberately lose to help him with money.

Nana Patekar added that he knew about this but would take the money as he was in dire need of money.

Ashok Saraf gave Nana Patekar a blank cheque and told him that he has Rs 15,000 in his bank account. He asked him to withdraw any amount for paying the expenses. The actor remembered withdrawing Rs 3,000 and mentioned that Ashok Saraf has never asked him about that money.

Nana Patekar added that he returned all the money to Saraf when they were shooting for Savitri. Directed by Murlidhar Kapadi, Savitri was released in 1983.

Ashok Saraf will play a key role in the film China Mobile directed by Santosh Ram. Meanwhile, Nana Patekar will lead the film The Vaccine War directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri. It will release on August 15.
