Manoj Bajpayee has called his courtroom drama Sirf Ek Bandaa Kafi Hai as a wake-up call while talking about it in an interview.
During an interview with Pinkvilla, Manoj was questioned: “When you sign on for such films, is there ever a thought in your mind that how will people react? Will this create a controversy? Will this get extreme reactions?”
In response, The Family Man actor stated: “When there’s a story and there’s a script, if it moves you emotionally, if it shakes up your conscience, and if there is an opportunity for you to just attach yourself with this project, and be part of a great end up.”
He also quoted the example of Sirf Ek Bandaa Kafi Hai and said: “For me, I saw all of these opportunities in this story. A story that is important to be told. A story that concerns the safety and security of all the minor children.”
“That minor child in this case is a girl. It can be your daughter, it can be your sister, anyone. So it’s a wake-up call. This film is a wake-up call to all of us, so that we ensure the safety and security of children.”
Manoj Bajpayee’s Sirf Ek Bandaa Kafi Hai is going to be premiered at the New York Indian Film Festival. The courtroom drama is slated to release on May 23, reports Pinkvilla.
