Nawazuddin Siddiqui is portraying the role of Dashrath Manjhi in the upcoming biopic 'Manjhi-The Mountain Man'. Now reports suggest that the actor will pay tribute to him on his death anniversary which falls on 17th August.
Nawaz, along with director Ketan Mehta, will visit Manjhi's village- Gehuar in Bihar. The team will organise a function there to talk about Manjhi and will also inaugurate a gate that will serve as the entrance point to his statue, which was built a few years ago.
Further they even plan to donate funds to a school in the village. Ketan confirmed this news and said that they feel proud and fortunate to be able to fulfil Manjhi's dream.
