PeepingMoon Exclusive: Manoj Bajpayee's success is the reason I became an actor- Gulshan Devaiah on being compared to the icon


It is Gulshan Devaiah's world and we are living in it! With two back-to-back critically acclaimed projects, the actor is shining bright and we ain't complaining. While the audience was still raving about his performance in Dahaad, Gulshan made his way to the silver screen with a heartwarming film titled 8 AM Metro. The series and film are receiving positive responses from the public. 

In Dahaad, Gulshan played the role of a soft-hearted and righteous cop named Devilal. His sensitive portrayal won hearts and a fan went on to compare him with legends like Manoj Bajpayee and Irrfan! In an exclusive interview with, Gulshan reacted to the comparison.

He told us, "There's only one Irrfan and there's only one Manoj Bajpayee. Both have inspired me in my career. If Manoj Bajpayee didn't have the success that he has, I wouldn't have even thought of becoming an actor. Irrfan and Manoj Bajpayee laid a foundation and we are building on it. I will never take these comparisons seriously although it makes me happy. They are who they are and a lot of what we are is because of them."

8 AM Metro also stars Saiyami Kher and it is currently running in theatres.
