Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpai, who will be seen in Prakash Jha's political drama Rajneeti, says although he often gets invited to contest elections, he doesn't consider himself an able politician.
"During elections, most of the political parties send me invites to contest elections as their candidate. I'm immensely thankful to them for visualising me as their candidate. But so far, I have not been able to see myself as an able politician," Manoj posted on his blog www.manojbajpayee-en.itzmyblog.com.
Manoj, whose recently released film Jugaad, about sealing drive in Delhi went unnoticed, says it would be tough for him to take a break from acting and take up politics in the near future.
"I don't have the courage to disown the actor inside me and take up politics. Acting and family claim most of my time, and thus how will I be able to give time to politics?" he said.
As of now, Manoj is busy shooting for Rajneeti, which also features Ajay Devgan, Arjun Rampal and Katrina Kaif in key roles.
"I'm enjoying every bit of the shooting experience. There are a lot of artists in the film and that's a reason I have shooting on certain days and no work on the rest," he said.
