National award winning actor Manoj Bajpayee ensured that the anthem launch of his forthcoming awe-inspiring biopic, Budhia Singh – Born To Run was one to remember!
From Viacom18 Motion Pictures – the studio that gave Indian cinema Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Mary Kom and Manjhi – The Mountain Man, comes this inspirational true story of the world’s youngest marathon runner Budhia Singh - Born To Run.
Budhia Singh - Born To Run is based on the relationship between Budhia (Mayur Patole) and his judo coach, Biranchi Das, played by Manoj Bajpayee. Das rescued the little boy from one of Bhubaneswar's most notorious slums and helped him achieve incredible heights.
Manoj Bajpayee says, “I used to teach theatre to children in schools which was quite demanding. So that experience helped me to train them in the movie. To train a 5-year-old was difficult and to give him one direction was very challenging. I've always maintained distance from Mayur and the other children because I wanted them to feel that I was the coach. As an actor and an individual, working on Budhia Singh... was difficult and inspiring.”
