Actor Nana Patekar doesn't believe in asking people to watch his films as he feels his job ends once he completes the shooting for a project.
"My work ends when the shoot is over, the dubbing is over. This is not my work to shout and tell people, 'Please watch my film, it is very good'. If it is good, they will watch, if it's bad then they will not," the 61-year-old told reporters here Wednesday.

After protests in Mumbai, the Christian community in Goa is up in arms against Priyadarshan's latest film "Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal".
The Goan Catholic Welfare Union (GCWU) has threatened to disallow the screening of the film in the state if "objectionable" scenes in it are not deleted.
"If the film is screened in Goa we will protest. We will make sure that it is not shown," GCWU spokesperson Juino de Souza told IANS Wednesday.
"If need be we will involve the chief minister and Christian legislators in the Goa assembly," de Souza said.
Catholic groups Wednesday protested the portrayal in bad light of the clergy and community in Bollywood movies, with specific reference to "Kamaal Dhamaal Malamal" and "Kya Super Kool Hai Hum".
In a flash protest, starting from St. Peter's Church in suburban Bandra in northwest Mumbai, over 100 representatives of five groups took out a procession to Indian Motion Picture Producers (IMPPA) and Film Makers Combine (FMC) office a few kilometres away.
