Manoj Bajpayee, who is portraying a role of an AMU professor Siras, in his upcoming flick, ‘Aligarh’, is getting applause from all over.
The 46-year old told PTI, “We wanted to add more beauty to the character of Shrinivas Ramchandra Siras. We wanted to put him on a pedestal in terms of innocence. So, that’s how all of us moved into one direction of creating a beautiful story out of the life of a beautiful man.”
He added, “My job was also to perform this character in such a dignified way that everybody who comes out of the theatre, falls in love with Professor Siras and respects him.”
‘Aligarh’, in which actor Rajkummar Rao essays the role of a journalist, is all set to release on 26th February.
