Manoj Bajpayee not ready to compromise on money
National Award winning actor Manoj Bajpayee compromised on remuneration for good roles, but says he will not do it any more
National Award winning actor Manoj Bajpayee compromised on remuneration for good roles, but says he will not do it any more.
The actor, who rose to fame with his performance in "Satya", a role that fetched him the National Award, later proved his mettle in films like "Shool", "Pinjar" and "Zubeidaa".
Nowadays, he is trying to balance good roles with good money and said: "I will work only when I'd get the money I demand. I made this decision because for a long time I worked without money in the name of good roles. Now it's payback time."
Although he has changed his stance on the money part, he continued to do good work and won appreciation for his varied performances in films like 'Raajneeti', 'Gangs of Wasseypur', and 'Chakravyuh'.
Currently, the 45-year-old is busy promoting 'Tevar'.
Talking about his role in the Amit Sharma-directed film, he said he is playing Gajendar Bhaiya from Mathura, whose brother is a politician.
"This guy is a bit of a romantic person, he believes in love. He falls in love with Sonakshi Sinha's character, but she does not like him. So 'Tevar' is all about the twists and turns that follow," said the actor.
" I don't consider films as comedies, serious or emotional, I just see the script and the character. 'Tevar' has romance, comedy and everything else."
Arjun Kapoor too features in the film, which is coming out Friday.
