Rajkummar Rao got enough opportunities to share the frame with Manoj Bajpayee in Hansal Mehta’s ‘Aligarh’. And since then Rajkummar is apparently in awe of the seasoned actor. He said,” Manoj Bajpayee is a great actor and my experience of working with him was very good. When I wanted to become an actor, I was already learning a lot from him. And now that I am working with him, I get to learn even more.” The film is based on a real incident which occurred at the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). “It is a social cause, a human drama. It is emotional. There is nothing ‘hatke’ in it. It is a story which is very beautiful,” explained Rajkummar.
