MUMBAI — After Salman Khan, superstar Shah Rukh Khan has come forward to root for the success of Manoj Bajpayee’s “Traffic.” He says he has learned a lot form Bajpayee and wishes him “all the luck” with the film.
In fact, SRK took out time from the shooting of “Raees” and surprised Bajpayee, who was giving interviews for the forthcoming film, by personally visiting him at Mehboob Studio here and expressing his views about the film.
“I have learnt so much from Manoj Bajpayee. I felt the proudest when his last film (‘Aligarh’) became a hit. I wish ‘Traffic’ goes on to become a big hit too. I wish all the luck to Manoj Bajpayee on this one,” Shah Rukh Khan said in a statement.
“Traffic” is based on a road trip from Mumbai to Pune. The story revolves around the transportation of a harvested heart for a heart transplant case, chasing a strict deadline. During the mission, the characters face numerous difficulties and obstacles, traffic being one of them.
Bajpayee plays a traffic constable in the film who decides to spearhead a situation where a heart has to be delivered to a patient in another location amidst the heavy traffic in Mumbai.
