Mumbai, April 3 (IANS) Actor Nana Patekar has hugely benefited from Anees Bazmi's 'Welcome' hitting bull's eye at the box office -- the comic caper's success has led to his market price skyrocketing.

Nana is now getting what he used to command during 'Krantiveer' and 'Tiranga'. ' 'Welcome' has almost tripled my salary,' the actor said.

'I'm glad the film has worked. As far as I'm concerned, I'm done with a project after I dub and promote it. It was a pleasure doing something in that satirical tone. All of us - director Anees Bazmi, Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Mallika Sherawat and I - we worked hard,' Nana, who scorched<a href=Nana Patekar" src="/bollywood/images/uploads/nana_patekar_big1.jpg" align="right" border="" hspace="5" vspace="5"> headlines recently when Tanushree Datta accused him of 'indecent behaviour', told IANS.

Nana says he has never worked so hard and so much. And so what if his speed was somewhat stymied recently when he injured his leg.

He said: 'But now I'm ready work again, though nothing strenuous to start with. I'll first finish my three days' work for Rakesh Sarang's 'Horn O.K. Pleassse'. Those poor guys have been waiting patiently for me to recover so they could complete their work.

'Sarang, the new boy Muzammil Ibrahim and the girl Rimii Sen. And that TV actor Asgar Ali.... What talent he has! In our industry there's no dearth of talent. And I'm proud to be a part of it. My God! 35 years have just passed by! I started with Muzaffar Ali's 'Gaman'. But even before that I did bit parts here and there.'

The 54-year-old is super-excited about 'Horn O.K. Pleassse', which also has Tanushree.

'It's a very unique comedy. And I've enjoyed this experience tremendously. I've also said yes to Satish Kaushik for another unique project called 'Lal Bihari Mritak', a true-life story of a man who had to run from pillar to post to prove he was alive. I need to work out my dates with Satish.'

Yes, that's how busy Nana is these days.
