Famous Bollywood actor Nana Patekar is in the middle of a public uproar. Nana Patekar violently strikes a fan who tried to take a photo with him.

Nana Patekar violently strikes a fan
In the viral video, Nana Patekar violently strikes a fan on the head as he attempts to take a selfie. Following the forceful slap, one of Patekar’s team members intervenes, grabbing the fan by the neck and forcibly escorting him away from the actor.
Social media platforms have been flooded with reactions from netizens, with many condemning Patekar’s physical response. One person said, “He displayed his genuine shades. Even though the fan wasn’t right, he shouldn’t have slapped him that hard. Pathetic.” Another suggestion was “Nana Patekar par physical assault ka case kardena chahiye” (a physical assault case should be filed against Nana Patekar).
Nana Patekar issued an apology
To try and respond to the growing criticism, Nana Patekar offered humble apologies. He fervently stated that the regrettable event resulted from a genuine miscommunication. He was rehearsing a sequence for his next film, “Journey.” The actor made a passionate video message in which he said he saw the fan as a fellow member of the film crew. He believed it to be a necessary part of the scenario. So he slapped him out of the blue. Unfortunately, Patekar acknowledged that the fan had left quickly before he could clear up the misunderstanding. Leaving a heartbreaking feeling of regret in his wake.
