Manoj Bajpai, who is currently seen in "Swami" opposite Juhi Chawla, is slowly, but steadily proving his worth as a complete actor in the industry. Manoj no longer wants to do the same kind of roles, but try his hands on different things.
In one such effort, Manoj has acted in a thriller film called The Whisperer alongside actor Rahul Bose. Rajeev Virani directs the movie. And very few people know that this film has won acclaims. "The film has won an award for best editing and best film genre at the 40th World Fest on Houston," reveals Manoj. This annual film festival plays host to hundreds of new feature and documentary from all over the world.
This is Virani's second film, the first being the Kashmira Shah-starrer "My Bollywood Bride". Speaking about his last venture, Virani says that it was "The Whisperer" which he wanted to make first. "But no producer would back a thriller that has no blood and gore. So I grabbed the chance to direct another film in between".
Nonetheless, it must be another pat on the back for Manoj who has already won a national award for "Pinjar".
