Mumbai: Actor Manoj Bajpayee says his role as a traffic constable in his film, Traffic has very few dialogues — almost all of which have been shown in the trailer!

"In the whole film, I'm just sitting in a car and turning the steering (wheel). There is more silence for me in this film, my dialogues are minimal and almost as good as nothing. And whatever little dialogues I had, they have been all shown in the trailer," he said at the trailer launch of the film.

He plays a traffic constable in the film who decides to spearhead a situation where a heart has to be delivered to a patient in another location, amidst the heavy traffic in Mumbai.

"Most of the constables in Mumbai come from the small places of Maharashtra and I had to grasp their style of speech and mannerisms. We don't know about the difficulties they have to face in their personal life, their family troubles and professional crisis.”

The movie is remake of a Malayalam film of the same name.

The film, also starring Jimmy Shergill, Sachin Khedekar, Prosenjit Chatterjee and Parambrata Chatterjee among others, will be in theatres on 6 May.
