MUMBAI MIRROR (April 10, 2017)

Manoj Bajpayee has said that he wants to establish a film institute in Patna. “I aspire to have a big film institute in the Bihar capital as for many kids there, it's not affordable to go out of the city to study. If they get such an institute in the state, they won't have to pursue other courses and struggle,“ Manoj was quoted as saying recently. “Being an actor is as difficult as being an engineer, a businessman or anything else in this world,“ the two-time National Award winner noted.

Manoj's recent release Naam Shabana, which is front-lined by Taapsee Pannu and has Akshay Kumar in a cameo, has opened to much critical acclaim. The Satya actor also added that because of such films producers won't be afraid to do women centric films. Next up for Manoj is Neeraj Pandey's Aiyaari which also features Sidharth Malhotra and goes on the floor next month.
