Manoj Bajpayeaishwarya rai for loreal paris

Manoj Bajpayee, after dazzling audiences with his performance in Gangs of Wasseypur, is now getting ready to play a gangster in Sanjay Gupta’s Aishwarya Rai-Irrfan Khan-Shabana Azmi starrer Jazba. In the movie, Manoj will have most of his scenes with Aishwarya.


Says a source, “Manoj’s role is not a long one, but it’s an important part. Apart from Aishwarya, he has scenes with the remaining members of the cast too.”

Aishwarya (returning to the big screen after four years) plays a lawyer in the film, while Irrfan plays the role of a suspended cop and Shabana Azmi plays his mother, a professor. John Abraham has an important cameo in the film which also stars Shraddha Kapoor’s brother Siddhanth, who essays a mental patient.


Ironically, Manoj was earlier cast as a gangster in Gupta’s Mumbai Saga but that film has been put on hold. Gupta said, “Manoj is an intense performer and is like family to me. We are working on the details, but he is yet to sign the film though.”


The film is expected to go on floors in January 2015.
