MUMBAI–Filmmaker Hansal Mehta’s reality drama “Aligarh”, which is based on the real life incident of doctor Shrinivas Ramchandra Siras, who was suspended from his job as a professor because of his sexual orientation, and stars Manoj Bajpayee and Rajkumar Rao in lead roles, will release in February next year.
Manoj announced the release date of the film, which had its premiere at the 20th Busan International Film festival earlier this year, while talking to a fan on Twitter.
A fan asked the “Gangs of Wasseypur” actor why there was no news about the Indian release of “Aligarh”.
To that, Manoj replied: “It’s not released. In February.”
“Aligarh” was also screened at the 17th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival in Mumbai last month.
