Actor Manoj Bajpayee, who has been winning hearts with his latest outing, The Family Man, is not too open about his real family. His wife, Shabana, was a actor, but Manoj rarely talks about his personal life.

Manoj Bajpayee's wife Shabana quit acting a few years after marrying him in 2006. After making her debut in Kareeb in 1998, along with Bobby Deol, she featured in a few movies, including Fiza. She was last seen in Acid Factory (2009).

Manoj and Shabana have a ten-year-old daughter Ava Nayla.

Elaborating on his family life, Manoj had told Filmfare in a 2012 interview, "I am a family man. The only difference between me and others is that while they work in corporate offices, I am an actor. I too like to go back home after work. I don’t mind stopping to pick up groceries. On a holiday, Shabana and I visit malls to shop for our daughter. If my driver doesn’t turn up I go and buy tomatoes. I enjoy all this. But I don’t like going to parties. After returning home, I exercise, perform pooja and catch up on my reading or sleep."

Manoj does not share his family's pictures too frequently but both Shabana and Ava make a few rare appearances on his social media pages.
