Manoj Bajpayee recalls run-ins with film people in ‘Aap Ki Adalat’

On Saturday, May 20, Manoj Bajpayee appeared on ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, hosted by India TV Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma, and explained why he ran behind Tigmanshu Dhulia with a brick, and many other such episodes.

Bajpayee is one of Bollywood’s most talented actors, as evidenced by his filmography.

He has collaborated with many talented filmmakers and is friends with Hansal Mehta, Dhulia, Anurag Kashyap, and others.

They’ve been together and known each other since the start of their careers.

Bajpayee is known for his fantastic acting, but he is also known in the industry for his rage and quarrels.

“I did not speak with Anurag Kashyap for 11 years, but the reason was different,” the actor revealed.

“He ( Kashyap) became enraged at one point. He was the one who fled, and I followed him to beat him up,” Bajpayee said on the show, according to a media statement from India TV.

When Sharma reminded him that “you also once ran after Tigmanshu Dhulia carrying a brick,” Manoj responded, “Ab chhodiye…Jawaani ki kuch galtiyan, uske baare me kya baat karen (Please forget it, why speak about my mistakes when I was young).”

Sharma also reminded Bajpayee of an incident when he rang up director Hansal Mehta from the US and showered abuses on him after which the duo didn’t speak for six years. The actor said, “Ji Sahi Hai. Sweekar Hai. Maafi Maangta Hoon. (Yes, I admit. I apologize)”.

Talking about Anubhav Sinha, Sharma asked, “You abused him when you were offered only Rs 2000 per episode?” To this, Manoj Bajpayee said, “Let me describe. Anubhav Sinha was doing a serial. I was to work as a dumb right-hand henchman of a mafia gang leader. It was the role of a dumb. The producer promised to pay Rs 4000 per episode.

“I did four episodes and the amount came to Rs 16,000. That was in 1993 when I hardly had money for my living. I went to the producer, and he said, he was fooled.

“This was the role of a dumb and I had no dialogues to deliver. Why should Rs 4000 per episode be paid? I told him, one has to toil a lot to do the role of a dumb. He said I’ll pay you only Rs 1,500 because you had no dialogue.

“I told him to keep this money…consider this as my donation. I threw his cheque in his office and walked out. I rang up Anubhav Sinha. He said, he is the producer, what can I do? I became angry, and told him, you are my good friend but you did not take a stand for me.”
