Manoj Bajpayee of Gangs of Wasseypur fame has come forth to share the stories of his struggles. The actor’s life story is all about how he lost his career and yet chose to be persistent. He also shared his confrontation with the harsh reality that his talent will never be recognized.
Manoj Bajpayee Talks about Hardships in his Life:
As per Hindustan Times, he said, “It happened before Pinjar (2003). When such a great film didn’t see that kind of footfalls in theatres, and not even nominated at any mainstream award functions, it completely — I wouldn’t say disillusioned — it actually put the truth right in front of my eyes. No matter whatever I will do, or what I have been trying to do, these people are not going to award or recognise me, and the audience is somewhere not interested in watching the films I do, so I am on my own.”
The 51 year old actor also confessed that his career went down completely. He also said that there was a point when he chose to do average work only for monetary reasons. He was quoted as, “I could see that I was sliding down. No matter how many chips are down, I have never been down. I have used those low phases of mine in bettering my craft and myself as an actor and person. I have done things which I haven’t done for few years. Sometimes, I have done a few wrong films, just to keep the kitchen going. Yes, it was a phase where I was not getting offers, but somewhere my resolve was a hundred percent.”
He believes OTT Platforms will change time:
Looking forward to better times with a hopeful heart, Manoj said, “OTT platforms have been changing too many things in the current phase. I hope things will change drastically once the lockdown restrictions are lifted. Opposition is something you have to be ready to face every time, and when you have no one, it’s all the more better, because there’s no confusion in your mind. Then you have to fight it out all on your own, it gives you immense power.”
