"I believe he (Nana) is the most honest person in the industry... He is the most transparent man. I would not blame him for getting angry as he shows his anger when someone does wrong. So, I don't blame him. He is a fantastic human being," John said.

"He is an honest man and whatever he feels he speaks. He calls a spade a spade. There should be more Nana Patekars in the world today as that will make the world a better place. I have always had the most beautiful time working with him," he said.

John first shared screen space with Patekar in "Taxi No 9211"."He is very proud and happy for me. He told me I have come a long way. He treats me like his child..," John added.

The 42-year-old actor is the new addition to the sequel to "Welcome" but he felt comfortable with everyone.
"I was welcome on 'Welcome Back' sets. It was lot of fun as I have worked with Anil Kapoor in 'Shootout at Wadala', with Nana Patekar in 'Taxi No 9211' and in 'Garam Masala' with Paresh Rawal. I worked with Shruti Haasan simultaneously in 'Ricky Handsome' (their upcoming film)," John said.

"In a way I felt comfortable. I had not worked with Dimple Kapadia and Naseeruddin Shah... They both are very nice," he said.
