Actor Manoj Bajpayee, who portrays a lawyer in the movie “Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai”, talked about the film’s sensitive approach to the victim while making the real-life courtroom drama. In an interview, Bajpayee said that being truthful to the actual events that took place is crucial. The film is a biopic of P.C. Solanki, the prosecutor for the victim in the Asaram case, who was accused of sexually abusing a minor. The movie received a legal notice from Asaram and the Sant Shri Asaramji Ashram Charitable Trust for its objectionable and defamatory trailer. The actress playing the victim in the film is a minor, so the team was careful and sensitive in their approach. The movie also tests the actor’s skill in speech and monologues. The film starts streaming on ZEE5 from May 23.

Being sensitive towards the victim was the foremost responsibility of the makers while making the true-life inspired courtroom drama, says Manoj Bajpayee. The makers of the film were sent a legal notice by self-styled godman Asaram and the Sant Shri Asaramji Ashram Charitable Trust alleging that the trailer of the film is “highly objectionable and defamatory.” However, Bajpayee says that the film is not based on “just one story” and that they have to be truthful to all those incidents that have happened.
The film is based on several incidents and not just one story
In an interview with PTI, Bajpayee stated that the film is based on several incidents and not just one story. He added that the case is already in the public domain, and the verdict is out, and they have to be truthful to all those incidents that have happened. The most important thing in the film, according to Bajpayee, is how well they treat the victim, given that the actor playing the victim is also a minor.
