Hansal Mehta’s ‘Aligarh’ starring Manoj Bajpayee and Rajkummar Rao to be screened at 59th BFI London Film Festival

Here’s a good news for those movie maniacs who love watching entertainers but have a heart for good cinema too. Director Hansal Mehta’s upcoming film ‘Aligarh’ will be screened at the 59th BFI London Film Festival!

The movie is based on the life of Aligarh Muslim University professor Dr. Shrinivas Ramchandra Siras, who was terminated from his job after his sexual orientation of being a gay was revealed.

The film will be screened as a part of the Festival’s debate- 'Riveting films that amplify, scrutinize and surprise'

“I am touched and very grateful that BFI has positioned Aligarh in such a relevant discussion. I think the recognition that international film festivals are giving us validates our reasons for making this film” said the National Award Winning director.

While Manoj Bajpayee would be seen playing the aged professor; Rajkummar Rao, who teams up with Hansal Mehta once again after ‘Citylights’ and ‘Shahid’, essays the role of a journalist.
