‘Feroz Khan is irreplaceable’


After a not-so-successful stint with the sequel ‘Ab Tak Chhappan 2’, Nana Patekar is returning to the silver screen with ‘Welcome Back’, which is again a sequel to the earlier hit comedy of 2007, ‘Welcome’. The prequel had late Feroz Khan playing the role of a don. On asking if Naseeruddin Shah’s character of Wanted Bhai is a replacement to Khan’s RDX, Nana quipped, “No one can replace Feroz Khan! He was the Feroz Khan. He used to treat us all like his kids. So there’s no question about anybody replacing anyone. If he was still alive, there’s no doubt that he would have done this role.” It must be noted here that ‘Welcome’ became Khan’s last film before he passed away in April 2009.
