- He likes to write, do rifle shooting, trek, travel, and cook.
- When he was in the seventh standard, he was very naughty. Because of this, he was sent to his mother’s sister home in Mumbai. A year later, his aunt packed his bags and sent him back to Murud because her children were getting spoiled under Nana’s influence.
- His father loved watching plays, dramas, and Tamasha (a folk form of the Marathi theatre). So Nana used to travel from Mumbai to Murud and participate in the plays to seek his father’s attention.
- He started acting since the age of 5 and has worked for a long time in the Marathi theatres, performing in various award-winning plays including Hamidabaichi Kothi and Purush before moving to Marathi films and television.
- When Nana was in ninth standard, his father was duped and lost his business, so, Nana had to start working to earn a living. He met a man named G S Tiwari, who gave him a job to paint movie posters. He got, Rs.35 a month and a meal per day as the payment for doing the job.
- Nana joined a theatre group called, Avishkar, which was run by Sulbah and Aarvind Deshpande. He won his first price while doing a play with them.
- He credits Smita Patil for his entry into Bollywood. Smita knew him from Pune, and she was the one to introduce him to Ravi Chopra. Talking about Smita, he says, Smita Patil was the reason I got into films. She kept telling me to get into films but I said I was happy doing theatre, I don’t like films. Today, when I look back, I don’t think I disliked films. Maybe I thought who would take me in films? I think it was a complex.
- When Nana was 28 years old, he lost his father, and within two-and-a-half years of that, he lost his first son.
- In an Interview, Nana revealed that he had faced discrimination during his initial days in Bollywood for not being handsome. In addition to that, he said, Main janta hoon ki main khubsoorat nahin hoon (I know I’m not beautiful). But I wanted to make my performances beautiful. They should talk for you. Always let your work talk for yourself. No matter how much you give interviews, or how much you are written about. it is always the performance which counts.
- He used to criticise the Filmfare Award jury for its award management, until, he won the award for the Best Actor for the film “Krantiveer” in 1995. In his award acceptance speech, he cried and said, I know I don’t look like an actor. I have the appearance of a labourer, yet I have received this award today. I am happy that today I am one of you. Until now, I used to feel a Filmfare Award could be bought. Now that I’ve received one, I know they can’t be bought. Everyone thinks the same. If you don’t win it, you end up saying they must have bought it. What can we do? After all, we’re only human…”
- He got involved with the ‘Citizen of Peace Movement’ during the 1992 Bombay riots, in spite of having close links to Shiv Sena (right-wing pro-Marathi and Hindu nationalist party active mainly in the state of Maharashtra).
- Nana admits that Bal Thackrey (politician and founder of Shiv Sena) was very close to him and had asked him to stand for elections on his party’s ticket. However, he denies his association with any political party.
- To perfect his role for “Prahaar: The Final Attack (1991),” he underwent strict army training for three years. In the early 90s, he was given the honorary rank of captain. He even served the Indian Army, including a stint in the Kargil War (3 May-26 July 1999).

- Nana, in an interview, revealed that he celebrates his son’s birthday in an orphanage.
- He met his wife, Neelkanti while working in theatres. She and Nana have acted together in many plays. Her debut movie as an actress was “Atmavishwas (1989).”
- He counts himself as a modest citizen of India and justifies it by living in a 1 BHK apartment with his mother. He believes in living in simplicity and says, I have not increased my needs at all. My needs are the same. If you come to my house, you will be shocked. My house is 750 sq ft., we had brought it for ‘Rs.1.1 Lakh, but even today I stay there only.”
- Even after becoming a famous actor, he used to hang out with his friends in Mahim Bar and consumed alcohol until he reached the point of unconsciousness.
- Being an atheist, he still celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi, only because his father used to celebrate it and after his father’s death, his mother insisted on carrying forward the same.
- Nana once revealed that he was a chain smoker. Talking about his smoking habits, he said, I used to smoke 60 cigarettes per day till I was 56. But then I just threw it and left it.”
- During the filming of the last scene of the film, “Parinda,” Nana got burned and was not able to work for almost a year. After a year, when they re-did the scene, Nana got into a fight with the director of the film, Vidhu Vinod Chopra as the incident still wandered in his head and he didn’t want Vidhu to use the rubber solution that caused him to get burned earlier. The fight between Nana and Vidhu turned into a fist-fight.
- In 2015, Nana started a non-governmental organisation called ‘Naam Foundation’ along with Makarand Anaspure. The organisation works to aid the farmers in drought-prone areas, Vidarbha and Marathwada in Maharashtra. In 2015, he distributed cheques of Rs. 15,000, to the families of farmers in the Vidarbha region, Latur, and Osmanda.

- He loves cooking and can cook for 150 people at a time. He even has a signature dish called “Nana Prawns.” Taking about his food, Nana says, Cooking is my passion. I am a better cook than actor. Cooking is like doing yoga. There is a lot of satisfaction in cooking food for others.
- He says that he has learned cooking and acting from his mother.
- Apart from films, Naseeruddin Shah and Nana have worked together in theatres too.

- In 2008, during the shooting of the motion picture “Horn O.K. Pleassse,” Bollywood on-screen character Tanushree Dutta leveled charges of ‘disgusting conduct’ against Nana Patekar. Following 10 years, she re-emitted the episode during the MeToo battle and documented a FIR against “Nana Patekar” on 6 October 2018.
- In 2014, he pummeled the augmentation of parole to the imprisoned entertainer Sanjay Dutt and pledged to never work with the sentenced star.
- In 2016, he upheld the boycott of Pakistani specialists in the Bollywood and stated, “Pakistan, artistes come later. My country starts things out. I don’t realize anybody aside from my nation and would prefer not to know whatever else. Artistes are little creepy crawlies before the country, we merit nothing contrasted with the nation. I would prefer not to recognize what Bollywood says. I was in the military for a long time. Our jawans are the genuine legends. We are conventional, futile individuals. Try not to focus on what we state. Do you comprehend whom am I discussing? Humlog jo patar karte hain, unpe dhyan tangle do. Unki aukat nahi utni.”
