Vishwanath "Nana" Patekar is a legendary actor who has appeared in several Bollywood and Marathi films. The 65-year-old actor-filmmaker has acted in films like "Gaman," "Mohre" and "Salaam Bombay!" among others, but he shot to fame only after he played the negative role in the film "Parinda." He went on to impress fans with his stellar performances in movies like "Krantiveer," "Khamoshi: The Musical" and Ab Tak Chhappan."

Nana, who is known for mostly portraying serious roles, also tickled the funny bone of moviegoers with his comic timing in "Welcome" and "Welcome Back."
