Nana Patekar seems to be having a great start to the year. His film, Natsamrat, directed by Mahesh Manjrekar is on track to be the make history as the Marathi Film till date.
The much anticipated film, inspired by Kusumagraj's iconic Marathi play of the same name, has so far collected around Rs 22 crore at the Box Office in its 10-day run. The film is now challenging the lifetime numbers of Lai Bhaari, Duniyadaari and Time Pass - which previously held the top spot.
