Manoj brings in the new year with a bang, as he manages to get two awards for his performance in Aligarh.
2016 was a fairly good year for Bajpai, as his performances films like Aligarh, Budhia Singh: Born to Run were appreciated.
And not just that, he recently won two awards the Filmfare awards. He got Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor (Male) for Aligarh and Best Actor (Male) in a Short Film for Taandav.
Obviously thrilled, Manoj says, "2016 has been extremely rewarding and satisfying for me as an actor. The year has given me many reasons to celebrate. All my releases this year, Budhia Singh-born to run, Aligarh, Saath Uchakke, Traffic; as well as the shorts like Taandav, Kriti and Ouch have been wonderful experiences. That is what I hope 2017 to be like. Looking forward to more opportunities to experiment and evolve as an actor as well as a person. Hope to see the audience support the great content in the cinema halls. I hope Budhia Singh runs again. I hope the critics will critique than criticise. I hope for more peace in the world and our country. I hope we are more tolerant towards each other."
