"With every no, I was making more enemies", Actor Manoj Bajpayee reveals being forced to do filthy films, makes shocking revelations!

After playing Bhiku Mhatre in the 1998 gangster movie Satya directed by Ram Gopal Varma, Manoj Bajpayee experienced instant fame. He competed against one of the greatest actors in the business for his legendary part. Yet, Manoj's pickiness made it difficult for him to acquire a job after Satya's achievement because of it. He recently admitted that by turning down the largest producers who were approaching him with suitcases full of cash, he made a lot of enemies in the business. 

Manoj said, "I realised that I don’t want to do what they are expecting me to do. All the offers that were coming my way weren’t something that I could fit myself into. Yes, the money was good. I had no money, and no work, and the biggest producers were coming to me. They came with suitcases full of money, and to say no to it was the toughest task I have ever faced. That was the time when egos were very big. People used to get offended very easily. And with every no, I was making more enemies,”.

However, Manoj credited Ram Gopal Verma for his success. "I owe my career to him. We stay in touch. Sometimes, he calls me just to give me gaalis (abuse me). I did this music video Sapne Mein Milti Hai, I did it out of goodness. And he called me and said, ‘What have you done, the song's remix is not good’. I told him, ‘Ramu, sometimes you do things for your friends’. He said 'I know, I understand that; but why did you do it?' If I get a call from him it is mostly because he is going to really blast me or criticise me. That is the kind of relationship I have with him.”
