Manoj Bajpayee: “I Made My Career Out Of Flop Films!”

Manoj Bajpayee won a National Award for his performance in Satya. Once the euphoria over this petered out, Bajpayee found himself doing a variety of roles that fetched him little to no acclaim. “I knew that I would not be able to sustain that euphoria from ‘Satya’. Because my choices are going to be very different and very risky. The choices after that were very risky. Sometimes I wanted to be in the flow, sometimes I wanted to be completely experimental,” Manoj said at LIFFT. 

“Some (films) worked and some did not. I always say that I made my career out of flop films,” he added.

The actor says that he only minds the low points in life if it affects his bank balance.

“Other than that, it really doesn’t bother me. If you are seeking for someone else’s approval that is your low, if you are not, then that is your high,” said Manoj at LIFFT. 


“When I was a child, I kept this dream of becoming an actor close to my heart, I think that was the training that happened in my childhood that I was not seeking the approval of anybody in that village in the family. The dream was mine and I chased it, I am still chasing it and I will keep on chasing it,” added the 48-year-old actor.

LIFFT India Filmotsav 2017 is a five day festival which started on September 1.
