Manoj Bajpai, who will be seen in Neeraj Pandey’s ‘Special 26’ next, said that he had become such a huge fan of Neeraj Pandey after watching ‘A Wednesday’ that he forced the director to cast him in ‘Special 26’.
“I was after Neeraj after seeing ‘A Wednesday’ that 'I want to work with you'. This is when ‘A Wednesday’ had come. That means I have been struggling to work with him since three to four years. This is true,” said Manoj Bajpai to IANS.
“Neeraj always used to pick my calls and kept meeting me. We kept telling each other that we will work together (some day),” he added.
Manoj Bajpai plays a CBI officer in the movie.
“He gave me such a big role. This is a thriller, so I can't say everything right now. But I guarantee that you will not know the suspense till the last frame," Manoj concluded.
‘Special 26’, also called ‘Special Chabbis’, is directed by Neeraj Pandey of ‘A Wednesday’ fame. The movie tells a story about a group of 26 men who rob rich businessmen and industrialists by posing as CBI and income tax officials.
The movie stars Akshay Kumar, Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Jimmy Shergill and Kajal Aggarwal.
‘Special 26’ is all set to release on February 8.
