Manoj Bajpayee hails from Belwa, a small village in Bihar. The actor, who visits his native place every year, has undertaken an initiative for the betterment of the village.

Apparently, he has been interacting with the villagers about the ongoing development. A source says, “Manoj takes notes of the issues and discusses them with the superintendent of police who is also his friend.”

The source further adds that this time the actor’s visit was special. “Manoj received permission to build a community hall. He is also seeking permission to build a school. Having a school in the village is a desire most people have. The actor is acting as a mediator between the residents and authorities,” says the source.

Manoj says, “I have spent some of my most memorable years in Belwa. This village has given me a lot and I feel it’s my duty to contribute to its development. I am trying as much as I can by speaking to the higher authorities to get permissions. Our next target is to receive permission to build a school. I am hoping that with my efforts the problems of the village get eradicated completely.”

The actor will next be seen in Naam Shabana, Sarkar 3, Love Sonia, In the Shadow and Missing.
