Mumbai: Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee, who has been appreciated for his roles in films like `Pinjar`, `Raajneeti` and `Gangs of Wasseypur`, enjoys essaying characters who are closer real characters. Glamour is not his priority, he says.

"I love doing those roles. I enjoy doing real roles as I relate to them. If glamour comes with it, it’s fine. Even if it doesn`t, that is also okay. I am very comfortable doing the kind of films which I do," Manoj, who will be seen as a politician in forthcoming film `Satyagraha`, said.

He said the term `cinema` encompasses all kinds of films, and that its main motive is to entertain.

"Cinema needs all kinds of films. It doesn`t have a responsibility of sending social message only. A film has to have a good story and entertain people. Audience is paying money, so they want to be entertained... so it is important to tell them a good story," he said.

Manoj said he is currently shooting for two films, which will release in 2014.

"`Saat Ucheke’, which is a Neeraj Pandey production, is ready, and `Traffic’ by Endemol is almost ready. Both the films will release next year," he said.
