Manoj Turns Producer
Actor Manoj Bajpayee, who will next be seen in Hansal Mehta’s Aligarh, has turned producer. The actor will soon be producing a film starring him and Tabu. Manoj’s banner is Manoj Bajpayee Productions Pvt. Ltd., and the first venture under it is yet untitled. It will be directed by debutant Mukul Abhyankar. The actor has just finished shooting for Aligarh. It is loosely based on the real-life incident of an Aligarh Muslim University gay professor, who was terminated from his job because of his sexuality. The shooting started in January-end this year, in Bareilly, and after a two-month schedule, it culminated in Mumbai recently. The film is scheduled to release later this year. Manoj Bajpayee essays the role of the homosexual professor in the film.
