Though doing off beat films are his forte, Manoj Bajpayee is equally active when it comes to commercial cinema and he will be soon seen in the masala entertainer Tevar. But what comes as a surprise is that this actor now will be sharing screen space with none other than the former beauty queen and now yummy mummy Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa.
However, just like his other films with Sanjay Gupta including the recent Shootout At Wadala, Manoj will reprise the role of a gangster. However, from what we hear, though he will not be playing the lead, he will be playing an important part in the film. The character that the actor is playing will also have many scenes with other members of the cast and is crucial to the story. Though Sanjay Gupta stated that Manoj is a part of the film, he mentioned that the actor is yet to put his confirmation on paper.
Jazbaa has an ensemble cast with Aishwarya playing the role of a lawyer, Irrfan playing the role of a suspended cop and Shabana Azmi as his mother and a renowned professor. On the other hand, the film will also see John Abraham in a special appearance. The film is expected to go on floor in January 2015 and it seems that Gupta is aiming at Cannes to premiere the film.
