New Delhi:

Manoj Bajpayee recently opened up about how he dealt with rejections and failure in his career. Speaking at the Arth: A Culture Fest,  the actor said, “When there is no work, there is a lot of work.” Manoj Bajpayee added that rejection, failure or success doesn’t define a person. He added, “Rejection never defines you. Failure never defines you. Similarly, success doesn’t define you. Manoj Bajpayee jo actor aaj hai woh 30 saal pehlay bhi wahi actor tha. [There has been no change in the last 30 years. I am the same actor.]

Talking about failure and what kept him going, Manoj Bajpayee added, “At the time of failure, I didn’t become a bad actor. I was the same actor. Jo main kaam kar raha tha woh commercial market ka jo interpretation uske hisab se main failure thaBut meri naazro main mera kaam faliure nahi tha. [At that time, my work wasn’t up to the mark according to the interpretation of commercial market. But that’s wasn’t the case for me.]”

He continued, “Main sirf ek baat janta hai. Eki din ayega mauka milega aur main aa jaunga. [I was confident that one day I will get a chance to make a comeback.] The video was shared by Neelesh Misra on Instagram with the caption, “When there is no work, there is a lot of work.” Life lessons on dealing with rejection and failure from the one and only Manoj Bajpayee. As I have said in this conversation, “Manoj Bajpayee aise hi nahin bante.”’
