Mumbai: Actor Manoj Bajpayee says that he's highly inspired by critically acclaimed Marathi films "Court" and "Killa".
He was present at the screening of Marathi film, "Mantalya Ulhat" where he told media: "I was inspired watching films such as 'Court' and 'Killa'."
"The good thing is that in Marathi cinema, there is some brilliant work being done. A whole group or generation has come to the fore that is not just making good films but also inspiring filmmakers across the country to make films like them or better it," he added.
"Court" had won the National Award for best film this year while "Killa" won awards at the Berlin Film Festival.
