Manoj Bajpai Bags Critics’ Choice Award For Best Actor For His Role In ‘Aligarh’

Updated on 25 April, 2016 at 3:47 pm By

Making waves is nothing new for Manoj Bajpai. He’s been doing it these past couple decades. In ‘Satya’, and ‘Pinjar’, and ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, Bajpai made people sit up and pay attention to the sheer magnitude of his talent.

He’s one of those actors who, with every movie, redefines what it means to be a Bollywood hero. With his absolutely stellar performance in ‘Aligarh’, the man has raised the bar even higher.

Professor Siras lived a quiet, lonely life and only ever found snatches of love and companionship in the dark of night. He died a quiet, untimely, unjust death. Manoj Bajpai brought his story back to life. His earthy, authentic portrayal of a simple man’s life gone terribly awry made people realize that in some corner of India, a man was killed for loving — for loving the wrong person, for loving a poor man, for loving a man.



 

With this award, Manoj Bajpai joins the ranks of cinema greats like Prithviraj Kapoor, Satyajit Ray, Shyam Benegal, Gulzar, and Dilip Kumar.

He deserves it. And how! Kudos!
