The veteran actor has a unique take on the issue
Nana Patekar has always been all about helping the people in need. He has actively campaigned to help the drought stricken farmers of Maharashtra and preventing farmer suicides. Also, he is a man who speaks his mind and is not afraid of hurting others with his brutal honesty. Now, he has a strong opinion about the whole Pratyusha Banerjee suicide.
Nana Patekar is angry again. Campaigning for the rights of farmers he feels excessive attention is devoted to sensational news rather than issues that should really concern us.
In an interview to a news channel, Nana Patekar said, “The girl (Pratyusha) dying was most unfortunate. But it is being highlighted day after day in the media. What about farmers who kill themselves? Are their lives not worth anything?”
While agreeing with Nana on the importance of highlighting the plight of farmers, a filmmaker who has worked with the actor-activist says, “Nana tends to get too emotional about national issues. He should be more restrained. His powerful voice will go a very long way.”
Ever since the unfortunate death of the famous TV actress came to the fore, everyone has had an opinion about her death in one way or another. We have seen TV actors, actresses and some publicity hungry celebrities all shouting that they know the actual truth about the tragedy.
On the other hand, Nana feels that this issue has been given enough attention and that it is the farmers who always get neglected. It is definitely a unique and more sensible take on things nonetheless.
