Revisiting Manoj Bajpayee’s iconic character on his birthday

As Manoj Bajpayee celebrates his birthday today, we take a trip back memory lane.


Actor Manoj Bajpayee has done some stunning and stellar performances in his career. All his characters can easily be called legendary and iconic. Each one of them has stood out in his filmography.

One such iconic and memorable character is the one of Bhiku Mhatre from Satya. The character that finally put Manoj Bajpayee on the map in the industry. Playing the leader of underworld gangs, Bajpayee brought the role to life with his charm.

The loud and rough gang-leader role seemed to come naturally to him, yet there was something very human about Bhiku Mhatre. Manoj Bajpayee’s way of playing the character of a gangster became a lesson for other actors.

The way Bhiku softens when he is with his wife, or how he cared a lot for the members of his gang- all made this character unforgettable. But more than anything, we remember Bhiku Mhatre as the curly-haired, brash gangster with a heart of gold.
