Actor Manoj Bajpayee feels he cannot advise newbies as most of them want to ape the likes of Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan. “I don’t think anyone wants to become Manoj Bajpayee, everyone wants to become Shah Rukh, Salman and any message from me to them will be of no value,” says the actor, adding: “I’ll just say whatever you do, do it honestly.”
Known as one of the finest actors in filmdom, the 43-year-old carved a niche for himself with his performances in films such as Satya, Shool, Zubeidaa, Pinjar and recently released Gangs of Wasseypur.
His next is Prakash Jha’s Chakravyuh and will see him as a Maoist. “It’s a good film... Prakash Jha is one director whose films don’t just have songs and dance, but they also have a strong storyline, strong performances, and good camera work. It’s a wholesome experience. It’s not just entertainment, but you also become aware about that subject,” Manoj said.
The film also stars Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol, Esha Gupta, Om Puri, Kabir Bedi and will release on Dusshera, October 24.
