Bollywood veteran Nana Patekar refuses to associate himself with his former friend Prakash Jha's Raajneeti any further after their fall out, says a media report.  

Nana Patekar had walked out of the shooting after a fall out with the director and it doesn't look like the two are making up in a hurry. Jha's hurt and rejection has pushed Nana to the limit.  

On Sunday night, the cast of the film including Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpai saw the film for the first time. Nana Patekar was conspicuous by his absence.  

When asked about it, Prakash Jha admits that matters between the two have come to a head, “When my assistant rang up to invite Nana for the Raajneeti screening on Sunday, N a n a refused pointblank. He said he didn't want anything to do with the film. He won't attend any premiere or events. He won't see the film at all. That's what he said.”  

Prakash has no intention of cajoling Nana into changing his mind. He says, “Why should I ask him? I won't call him or send him any message. It's me who has reason to be upset with Nana's behaviour, and not the other way around.”  

Nana is known to be hot-headed and the outspoken liberties come at a price. About the screening of Raajneeti, Prakash says, "Ironically, the youngsters are very happy with their own and each other's performances. It's the oldies who are upset."
