    I played the role of Manto in one of our office social events where his story ' Jao Hanif Jao" was screened as a drama. It is one of my most liked roles of my career as an amateur drama artist. I respect Sadat Hassan Manto.

    Good. For years history has been suppressed and twisted. It is time our children and the whole world knows what tricks were played upon our nation.

    Such persons who try to bring human sufferings at the hands of the powerful and the tyrants to light are ignored, suppressed and victimised, ridiculed and destroyed so the vicked can continue to rule. Thus defeated souls are reduced to infamy while the guilty powerful fly on a carpet of victory until evetually the judgement day arrives... of the powerful to light

    Morning shows of Manto were abruptly cancelled in Delhi, Noida, Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad on opening day. Cinemas cited a technical glitch as the cause. https://www.hindustantimes.com/bollywood/early-shows-of-manto-cancelled-in-delhi-mumbai-ahmedabad-nandita-das-reacts/story-bhdFiSTFRk4PusIuMXThVP.html
