Manoj Bajpayee will be playing a gay professor in Hansal Mehta’s next film.

He officially went on record to confirm the news. ���Yes, the character is that of a 60-year-old professor who is gay. We are going to start shooting in January and the preparations have already started.”

Indian Express reports that the film is inspired by a suspended professor at Aligarh University who was filmed on spy-cam having consensual sex with a rickshaw-puller just days before he was going to retire.
