Mumbai, Oct 27 (IANS): Manoj Bajpayee has impressed many with his acting skills, but dancing in the movies is something he would have liked to explore more.
Bajpayee shakes a leg after a long time before the camera, for the song “Basanti” in his upcoming film, “Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari”.
“I would have liked to explore dance in movies more, but there was little scope for it in my choice of movies. I did enjoy dancing to the catchy beats of ‘Basanti’. It reminded me of ‘Satya’,” Manoj said referring to his 1998 film that saw him groove to the song “Sapne mein milti hai”.
