Earlier talking about the film, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor had said, “He was a big fighter for free speech. Manto had always been true and wrote what he saw around him. The greatest challenge for me was that I was not like him. I am not like Manto. I tell lots of lies. I had to listen to my director and really had to purify myself (I was very polluted) before I began shooting.”
The actor further stressed upon the fact that he was so engrossed in the role of Manto that he “could not think anything else” and was caught in Manto’s state of mind for a long time. “I want to do artistic films but also commercial films because I need the money and because I need the money I continue to make films,” he said. It was also revealed during the session that Siddiqui did not charge a single penny for Manto and did the movie free of cost.
