New Delhi: Another feather has been added the talented actor Manoj Bajpayee's hat of success with Dadasaheb Phalke Award.
After receiving two National Awards for 'Satya' in 1998 and 'Pinjar' in 2003, the 'Gangs of Wasseypur' actor will be awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke in the Best Actor (Critics' Choice) category for portraying Dr. Siras in the much appreciated movie ' Aligarh'.
