When we stretch the time period, most of the celebrities like Deepika Padukone to Irrfan Khan from Bollywood pouncing Hollywood, meanwhile Manoj Bajpayee has no plans of swooping in the vogue of the international entertainment industry.
Though Manoj Bajpayee is currently working for an Indo-American film but when asked by a daily in an interview, if he is interested in jumping into Hollywood projects further in his career, he said, “I’m looking at projects as and when they come. Hollywood has never been a part of my plan or my life. Bollywood is where I want to be and this is what I’m doing right now. If something interesting from any part of the world comes, then I will take it up… I am a child, who has grown up in a village. For me, reaching even Delhi was impossible and I could not think of anything beyond Delhi or Mumbai.”
Meanwhile his latest movie “Saat Uchakkey” is an Indian Comedy directed by Sanjeev Sharma featuring Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Kay Kay Menon, Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, and Aditi Sharma in lead portrays was released on October 14, 2016. The movie till now has just grossed 1 crore in the first weekend.
This not fair enough as if we look the IMDb rating of the film is 7.5 out of 10.
If we talk about Manoj Bajpayee’s recent tie-up with Ram Gopal Varma after a long span of 14 years for a lead role in Sarkar 3, which will feature Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Suniel Shetty and Randeep Hooda had been tossed around for other roles in the film. Sarkar 3 will not feature Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan’s role is not yet disclosed in the same context.
