The first look of Manoj Bajpayee as the gay professor in Hansal Mehta’s next ‘Aligarh’ has been released.

The look shows Manoj as an old professor clinging on to his belongings. The actor looks every bit of the character with his greying hair, unkempt beard and a brown suit, seated on a chair, seemingly contemplating some deep thoughts.

���We wanted the first look of Manoj’s character to be impactful and create just the right amount of curiosity amongst the audience. Manoj is a fantastic actor and he embodies the trials and tribulations that his character in the film goes through. I’m extremely happy for the way the film is turning out,�۝ said Hansal Mehta who is not just directing the film but also producing it under the banner, Karma Pictures along with Sandeep Singh. The filmmaker is also extremely excited about his third collaboration with the very talented National award-winning actor, Rajkummar Rao (after Shahid and Citylights) and will soon share glimpses of his look in the film.

Producer Sandeep Singh adds, ���This film is based on a true life incident. One that has left a deep impact on people and we wanted to achieve the same with the first look of Manoj’s character. The film is turning out wonderfully and we really hope that with this look, audiences can see what we�۪ve been seeing. This is just one of the many aspects of the film and we are eager to give the audience more glimpses into our film gradually.�۝

��Aligarh�۪ is based on the real life incident of a gay professor who was terminated from his job because of his sexuality.
