Versatile actor Manoj Bajpai has shown a knack for unusual and offbeat roles ever since he stepped under Bollywood's arc lamps.
In the next Ramgopal Varma production 'Road' Manoj is playing a lone hitchhiker who asks for a ride from an eloping couple (played by Vivek Oberoi and Antara Mali).
As the film progresses, Manoj's eccentricities come to the eloping couple's notice and they suspect that they have given ride to a psycho.
Film's director Rajat Mukherji, who earlier directed Pyar Tune Kya Kiya says Manoj's character in the film will jolt the viewers out of their seats. "It is a character with psychotic shades," he says.
Even the film's hero Vivek Oberoi has stated that he would gladly have swapped his leading role with Manoj's 'brilliantly conceptualized cameo'.
The 'Road' is expected to hit the theatres coming Friday.
