Ac­tor Manoj Ba­j­payee (above) is a trav­eller at heart. And Kash­mir seems to be on the top of his long to-go travel list. The ac­tor, who had first vis­ited the place while he was in school, says that he is keen to take his fam­ily to Kash­mir soon for a va­ca­tion.

The 48-year-old ac­tor in fact, was re­cently in the val­ley to shoot for the first sched­ule of film­maker Neeraj Pandey’s next film Aiyaary, which also stars Sidharth Mal­ho­tra in the lead role. And he wants his six-year-old daugh­ter Ava Nayla to ex­pe­ri­ence the beauty of the land, which is of­ten re­ferred as the heaven on earth. “Shoot­ing in Kash­mir was sur­real. I’m look­ing for­ward to go on a fam­ily trip soon, es­pe­cially for my daugh­ter. I want her to get a feel of the lo­cal cul­ture,” he says.

The Na­tional award­win­ning ac­tor en­joys trav­el­ling to dif­fer­ent spots, when­ever he gets time. “Once my pro­fes­sional com­mit­ments are over, I shall re­visit Kash­mir as I’m in love with the place,” adds Manoj.

While shoot­ing for the film, the lo­cals treated him with Wazwan, a multi-course meal part of the Kash­miri cui­sine. And Manoj is keen to make Ava and wife, Neha, to gorge on the mouth wa­ter­ing lo­cal Kash­miri cui­sine.
