PUNE: Actor Nana Patekar on Saturday defended NCP MP Amol Kolhe who’s dealing with flak for taking part in Nathuram Godse in an upcoming movie, pronouncing an artiste has the appropriate to select a task.
He himself had essayed the position of Mahatma Gandhi’s murderer in a TV collection a few years in the past, he reminisced.
“Kolhe did that position when he used to be in every other celebration, and (NCP leader) Sharad Pawar has mentioned this previous. Now not many of us know this, however I had performed Nathuram Godse round 30 years in the past in (British TV collection) “Lord Mountbatten: The Remaining Viceroy”,” Patekar advised journalists right here.
“Does it imply that I fortify the (persona’s) ideas? I’m an artiste, and were given the position. It is an artiste’s selection. When one helps that persona’s ideology, then questions can also be requested, however for an artiste, it’s his bread and butter,” he added.
Within the movie “Why I Killed Gandhi”, directed by way of Ashok Tyagi, Kolhe, an actor-politician, might be observed as Gandhi’s murderer.
The movie used to be shot in 2017.
Kolhe, who began his political innings with the Shiv Sena, joined the NCP in 2019.
