New Delhi, Oct 24: National Award winning actor Manoj Bajpayee, who shares screen space with Sidharth Malhotra in the upcoming movie "Aiyaary", says working with the young actor is "great". "Sidharth is a great guy to work with and a great guy to know. We kind of developed some kind of fantastic bond while working for 'Aiyaary'," Manoj told IANS over phone from Mumbai. Talking about the film, directed by Neeraj Pandey, Manoj described it as a "great script". "It is one of the best scripts I have been a part of. It's a story based on true events.
