Reportedly, Nana Patekar met Home Minister Amit Shah in the wake of the Maharashtra floods. The veteran actor met Shah in Delhi on Monday. Ever since their meeting, speculations are rife that the ‘Ab Tak Chhappan’ actor might be joining Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP).

Nana apparently had a five-minute-long meeting with Amit Shah. Now, there are conjectures that he might participate in the assembly elections on BJP’s ticket. Apart from his acting, Nana has always been very active on the political front. Be it lending his support to charity work or standing up for the farmers, Nana has done it all.

This year, the Assembly elections will take place in Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Haryana. So if Nana joins BJP, then that may not come as a surprise for his fans and followers. He has always been vocal about his political views.

According to a report in Hindi Rush, talking about this meeting, Nana revealed, “I met Amit Shah in the wake of the recent floods in certain regions of Maharashtra. We have an organisation and it cannot accept donations from people for the flood relief work unless we have a certificate from the government.” 

Last year, the ‘Welcome’ actor was called out by Tanushree Dutta in the #MeToo movement. She had even filed a case against Patekar. Ever since then, he has kept a low-profile. However, Mumbai police later gave a clean chit to Nana citing lack of evidence in the case filed against him.
