Manoj Bajpayee praises Hansal Mehta

New Delhi: Actor Manoj Bajpayee is in awe of director Hansal Mehta`s latest film ‘Shahid’ and is sure it will be well received by the audience.

"Hansal Mehta`s `Shahid` will shake and shock many in the audience next year. Proud of you (Hansal Mehta) . Lucky to know you as a friend," Manoj tweeted.

Mehta has made many films before like ‘Jayante’, ‘Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar’ and ‘Chhal’, which did not create a stir at the box office.

"Shahid" is based on the true story of Shahid Azmi, a 32-year-old lawyer. Co-produced by Anurag Kashyap, Guneet Monga and Sunil Bohra, the film features actor Raj Kumar Yadav playing the role of Shahid Azmi.
