Manoj Bajpayee is one of the finest actors in Indian Cinema. His versatility proved him to be a gifted performer in the art. In a career spanning over two decades, Manoj played quite a few memorable roles as a police officer in movies like Shool, Satyameva Jayathe, and Bhonsle.
But, the actor says that the role of DCP Aravind from the Telugu film Happy remains his favorite. Speaking in a recent interview, Manoj said, “Allu Aravind, the producer of my Hindi film, Kaun, convinced me to be a part of Happy after the director (Karunakaran) wanted me to play the part. I have great memories of my Telugu projects like Prema Katha, Vedam, and Puli (2010). It’s quite a task to learn the Telugu dialogues though.”
He opined that though DCP Aravind is serious by nature, the joke is always on him. Manoj added that he had memorable experiences of working in the Telugu film industry.
Directed by Karunakaran, Happy featured Allu Arjun and Genelia in the lead roles.
Currently, Manoj Bajpayee is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Dial 100 which will premiere on Zee5 on August 6.
