Nana Patekar, who played an encounter specialist in Ram Gopal Varma’s 2004 action thriller Ab Tak Chappan, has decided to sponsor four Indian shooters Lajja Goswami, Navnath Phadtare, Sanjeev Rajput and one more shooter, who he will choose soon.
The actor will adopt the four shooters and completely bear the expenses of their expensive training and will ensure that they get the best coaches in the world. His aim is to prepare the four shooters to win gold medals at the ensuing London Olympics.
Nana, an ardent shooter in real life, has confirmed his participation in the National Shooting Championship to be held in Balewadi, Pune from November 14.
Nana is also preparing for the sequel Ab Tak Chappan-2, where he plays an older policeman. The sequel is being produced and directed by Ram Gopal Varma.
