But, he was short-tempered, I myself heard a lot of stories about him.”The director also recollected when Nana Patekar asked him the reason behind casting him in ‘Welcome’. Bazmee told the actor that he knew the grammar of the film is on point and it would turn out to be a blockbuster.Bazmee also said that he told Nana Patekar that the audience would love his part in the film. 17 years down the line, Bazmee’s words have come true as Uday Shetty has become an iconic character in Hindi cinema with countless memes inspired by the character.–IANSaa/dan
