Nana Patekar celebrates his birthday today. As the iconic actor turns 69, there are a lot of things that make him stand out among the rest in Bollywood. Apart from his legendary style of acting, it is his approach towards life, his philanthropy, and the way he has kept his social work away from the limelight that has earned him admiration and accolades.

The winner of the 3 National Awards is the only actor apart from Irrfan Khan to win Filmfare for both best villain, best supporting actor, and best actor role.

Nana Patekar Refused To Use His Connections For Promoting His Son's Career

It is quite common in Bollywood for famous stars to promote and support their kids to get a good foothold in the film industry. Be it Sara Ali Khan, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, or Sonam Kapoor, everyone received ample support from their parents to kick start their career in the film industry.

Having worked for decades in the industry, Nana enjoys good connections with the topmost film directors and production houses in the film world. But when it came to settling the career of his son Malhar in the film industry, the Krantiveer actor refused to use any of these connections to promote Malhar's career.

According to reports, Nana Patekar wants his son to struggle and earn his place in Bollywood which is a far cry from what the B-town parents have been doing for their kids.

Nana Served Army During the Kargil War

During the making of Prahaar, Nana joined the training of the army for three years and was even given the rank of Captain. Later on, when India was facing the Kargil War, the Pratighaat actor returned and served the army.

The actor strongly supports the farmers in  Maharashtra and the whole of India and himself cultivates rice, wheat, etc. Importantly he gives the earnings from the produce to farmers who are in need of funds.
