Actor Manoj Bajpai says he is own inspiration when it comes to acting.

"As an actor, myself only. I am very passionate about acting and this is what I know and this is what I do the best," the 42-year-old told reporters on the sidelines of an event. 

Manoj has worked in films like Aarakshan, Raajneeti, 1971 and Satya. He is also part of forthcoming movies Chittagong and Shootout At Wadala.

But his personal favourite is the film he has just finished - Gangs of Wasseypur.

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Gangs of Wasseypur is about coal mafia in Jharkhand, while Bedabrato Pain's Chittagong tells the true story of a schoolteacher, Surya Sen who dared to take on the British Empire in 1930s along with a group of schoolboys and young women.
