MUMBAI: Actor Manoj Bajpayee says he is own inspiration when it comes to acting.

"As an actor, myself only. I am very passionate about acting and this is what I know and this is what I do the best," the 42-year-old told reporters on the sidelines of an event.

Manoj has worked in films like "Aarakshan", "Raajneeti", "1971" and "Satya". He is also part of forthcoming movies "Chittagong" and "Shootout At Wadala."

But his personal favourite is the film he has just finished – "Gangs of Wasseypur".

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, "Gangs of Wasseypur" is about coal mafia in Jharkhand, while Bedabrato Pain’s "Chittagong" tells the true story of a schoolteacher, Surya Sen who dared to take on the British Empire in 1930s along with a group of schoolboys and young women.
