Manoj Bajpayee got a huge turn in his career after he started The Family Man. He recalls his downtime in his career where he had been ignored by a journalist. The actor was having a rough time in his career and realized he is ‘not content’ anymore. The hit of the ignorance helped him to accept the failure so as the success. His was on-screen recently in The Family Man 2.
In an interview session with radio host Siddharth Kannan Manoj says, “I was going through a very rough patch at that time. Saare journalists bhi gayab ho gaye the, offers toh gayab ho hi gaye the (Not only did the offers disappear but the journalists too),” He pleaded the journalist, “Aisa please mat karna kisi ke saath, bhaiya, bohot bura lagta hai (Don’t do this with anyone else, it feels really bad).”
Moreover he continues, “Jab main apne aap ko taiyaar kar raha hoon ki bhai ab yeh mujhse baat karega (When I was getting myself ready to talk to him), he turned his back to me as if he didn’t see me and he told the cameraman, ‘Yeah, yeah, that’s alright. Just switch it off now’. It kind of bit me for five seconds. After that I realised, nahi hai, ab woh samay chala gaya tera (your time has gone), you are not content for him. And I moved on. But I always remember that, not for any other reason but that when failure or downfall comes, you should be ready to accept it, embrace it as you embrace and accept your success. You should have the ability to treat it in the same fashion, as a part of your life.”
