Manoj Bajpayee’s struggle after ‘Satya’
Manoj Bajpayee told in an interview to ‘Hindustan Times’ that he was adamant that he would not play the role of any villain and because of this he remained without work for a long time. He said, ‘After Satya, the industry saw me as a new villain. I kept saying that I will not do the role of villain. And as a result, after Satya, I wandered without work for eight months. I had a lot of offers and all of them were villain roles opposite actors. But I thought of something else. It was difficult to say no to so much money and work. I didn’t have both before Satya, and I was saying no to both after Satya. I did not know whether I was doing the right thing by doing so or not.
