Manoj Bajpayee talks about Bhaiyya Ji

Coming back to his upcoming release, Manoj Bajpayee said he drew inspiration from the megastar Amitabh Bachchan as well as his contemporaries Shatrughan Sinha and Vinod Khanna to play a massy hero in  Bhaiyya Ji. The revenge action film is directed by Apoorva Singh Karki, who earlier directed the actor in the critically acclaimed movie Sirf Ek Banda Kaafi Hai.



In the movie, the actor is playing the titular role, a man out to avenge his brother's death. "I grew up watching commercial films and all the big stars of that time, they were all my inspiration, be it Shatru ji , Vinod Khanna ji, Amit ji or Jeetendra Sahab and all of them. It happened subconsciously. I knew that I had to do certain things to make him look attractive on screen. So that everyone would like to be a figure like Bhaiyya Ji," he said. Meanwhile, the film marks Manoj Bajpyee's 100th outing in the Indian cinema.
