From movies like ‘Satya’, ‘Pinjar’ and ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ to his recent ‘Aligarh’, Manoj Bajpayee’s performances have remarkably raised the bar of acting in the industry. The National Award winner has now bagged the best actor award at the prestigious New York Indian Film Festival for his Hindi psychological drama – Gali Guleiyan.
Commenting on the same, the National Award Winning actor stated:
“When we didn’t get an award for Aligarh (2016), Hansal (Mehta, film-maker) personally was very disappointed as Aligarh was a special film for both of us. NYIFF is a very prestigious award as Indian films are selected with great care and curation. This time, I’m happy that I got this award for a film which has been a difficult journey, a film that taught me the craft of acting which improved me as an actor as it threw a lot of challenges my way. I’m also happy for Dipesh Jain (director) whose hard work has paid off. It’s amazing to know that everyone acknowledged our film and my part in the film as an actor. It gives me immense pleasure that it has been received well by audiences around the globe.”
Here’s wishing Manoj Bajpayee all the luck and success!
