Manoj Bajpayee is one of the most critically acclaimed actor in the industry. He has received appreciation many times for his stellar performances in films such as Gangs of Wasseypur, Aligarh, Satya, Rajneeti and others. In January, his name was announced in the list of actors who would receive the prestigious award which is also the fourth highest honour of the country, the Padma Shri Award. He was thrilled with excitement and couldn't believe it to be true. The  actor said in his statement, "My friends, relatives and followers are very happy with it. I have observed that till now, no one has abused me on social media and no controversy has been created when my name was announced.''

 

Now, finally, the Gangs of Wasseypur star has received the Padma Shri Award from the President of India Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashrapati Bhavan in New Delhi. The President presented Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan Awards in various disciplines including art, social work, public affairs, science and engineering, trade and industry, medicine, literature and education.

 

This is not the first award of high honour for the actor as he is the proud owner of two National Awards before this particular award. The actor was last seen in Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonchiriya in which he had a small yet an impressive role. The film also features Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Ashutosh Rana and Ranvir Shorey in it and was shot on the locales of the Chambal region.
