Mumbai, July 3 -- Over the years, Manoj Bajpayee has been part of several independent films. Now, in order to support indie cinema, he has associated himself with a website, which will 'webhost' (host online) cult and classic independent films, along with documentaries on Indian cinema.
"Manoj always wanted to be part of good movies, and encourage all kinds of films beyond Bollywood potboilers. He is quite excited to see how this new site will provide short film-makers with a platform to showcase their movies, and give them the recognition they deserve," says a source.
He aims to encourage and preserve the essence of indie cinema. He also wants to encourage new talent.
The actor confirmed the development, saying, "I have always been passionate about great cinema. This platform is the first-of-its-kind, and gives importance to talented short film and documentary makers, who don't get adequate recognition. We hope, with this portal, the film fanatics will get a dose of good cinema."
