Calling union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s announcement to release a stamp on Bihar’s mountain man Dashrath Manjhi “a great gesture”, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who played Manjhi in the recently-released film “Manjhi – The Mountain Man”, says he is thankful to the government.

The union minister announced earlier this week that a special edition stamp would be released soon to honour Manjhi along with former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

“I feel so honoured to have been a part of this movie. It’s a great gesture from the government and I personally thank them to have bestowed such an honour on a man like Dashrath-ji who single handedly carved the future of his village in a small district in Bihar. I am lucky I got to play a part of this man who is a true hero,” Nawazuddin said in a statement.

Directed by Ketan Mehta, the biopic also stars Radhika Apte.
