Actor-turned-BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha has given a thumbs up to Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s biographical film “Manjhi: The Mountain Man” calling the actor “the discovery of the century”. He also says the film is a “dynamic, realistic and timely film of Bihari pride”.

Directed by Ketan Mehta, the film is a biopic on Dashrath Manjhi, a resident of Gehlaur village in Gaya district. Popularly known as the “Mountain Man”, Manjhi single-handedly cut through a hill to make a road for his village. He died in 2007 in his early 80s.

Shatrughan took to micro-blogging site Twitter on Saturday to express his feelings about the film.

In a series of tweets, he wrote: “’Manjhi’ – a dynamic, realistic and timely film of Bihari pride and the original, strong DNA of a son of Bihar.

“Proud of this inspiring story of a son of the soil of Gaya, the great land of my ancestors. #Manjhi inspires lovers of life and believers in true love for all times. I salute state governments including Bihar for giving it tax rebates.

“The earthy “dynamite” @Nawazuddin_S is the discovery of the century. @radhika_apte is lovely and laudable. Wish roaring success.”

“Manjhi: The Mountain Man”, which released on Friday, also stars Radhika Apte as Phaguniya – wife of Dashrath Manjhi.
