Manoj Bajpayee, a well-known Bollywood actor and Padma Shri awardee, met former Bihar Chief minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, as well as his son and Deputy Chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, here on Saturday night.

Bajpayee, who is known for several acclaimed Hindi Bollywood films, met Lalu Prasad here at his residence to inquire about his health. 

Tejashwi Yadav took to Twitter to share the photographs of the noted actor meeting with Lalu and his family members and wrote, “Son of the soil of Bihar and famous actor of Hindi cinema, Padma Shri Manoj Bajpayee, visited our home and enquired about the health of my father, Lalu Prasad. With his hard work and dedication, he has made his name in the film industry and brought laurels to Bihar.” 

Bajpayee has played several prominent roles in movies like Satya, Shool, Gangs of Wasseypur and Veer Zaara among others. His rap song of Mumbai main ka ba during the COVID lockdown highlighting the migrant crisis became an instant hit. 

Lalu Prasad had suffered injuries to his shoulder earlier this year. He was brought to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for treatment. Recently, a Ranchi court allowed Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is accused in a fodder scam case, to go to Singapore for treatment. 

Meanwhile, Lalu’s RJD came back to power in Bihar after Chief minister and Janata Dal (United) (JD-U) leader Nitish Kumar snapped ties with the BJP after a gap of five years and joined hands with the mahagatbandhan. 

The Grand Alliance comprising the RJD, JD-U and Congress had defeated the BJP in the 2015 assembly polls, but the alliance failed after Nitish Kumar joined hands with the BJP in 2017.
