Not one to celebrate his birthday with parties, Manoj revealed that he agreed for the party this year as he was also honoured with the Padma Shri. “This year, I am celebrating with friends from the industry. It’s the first time I am having a get-together of this kind. It was on their insistence, saying I should not behave like a stingy man! They all thought they deserve a party not just for my birthday, but since the Padma Shri also happened this year. I have completed 25 years in the industry, which is an impossible industry for an outsider like me. So I gave into their demands,” he told Hindustan Times.

On the work front, Manoj was recently seen in Abhishek Chaubey’s Son Chiriya that also starred Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar. Based on real life stories of dacoits from the Chambal region, the film fell flat at the box office, disappointing the crew. “It’s disheartening, the manner in which this film has been dealt with, but that’s the nexus of distributors… most of my films are victims of this. This is not new for me, I take it on my chin every time. But my team members are all very sad, it was heart-melting to see them. I have been a fan of Abhishek Chaubey (director), who upped his game with this film. There are nearly six months left for the year to end, but one thing is for sure, it’s the best film of 2019 regardless of the fact that there are six months to go. At the end of the day, everyone thinks that since Manoj starred in the film, that’s why he’s talking like that. So be it! What is great, is great, whether I am in it, or not. I just hope and pray it gets its due justice on the streaming platform,” he said about the film’s reception.

He will soon be seen in Sam Hargrave’s Dhaka - an upcoming American film written by Joe Russo of Avengers fame that will also star Chris Hemsworth, David Harbour, Pankaj Tripathi, Golshifteh Farahani and Randeep Hooda.
