'Sushant Singh Rajput Could Not Handle Industry Politics And Groupism’, Claims Manoj Bajpayee, Says, ‘He Was A Pure Soul, Andar Se Baccha Tha’
Manoj Bajpayee says Sushant Singh Rajput could not handle the politics and groupism in Bollywood!
Veteran actor Manoj Bajpayee in a new interview opened up about working with the late Sushant Singh Rajput in ‘Sonchiriya’ and even talked about the bond they shared with each other. The senior actor revealed that he was personally very affected by his death as they both shared a close bond of friendship. Manoj also made some shocking revelations as he stated that SSR could not handle the politics and groupism in the industry.
Speaking with Aaj Tak, the Satya actor was asked about the death of Sushant and the nepotism conversation that sparked after he died. Bajpayee mentioned that SSR wanted to be a star and there’s too much competition for the same. However, he couldn’t bear the pressure. Recalling the time they had spent, Manoj was quoted saying, “We really became close and he had so much love for me. I would often cook mutton on set and he would always come by to eat. We never knew he would take such a drastic step but he had opened up about his challenges to me.” ALSO READ:‘Sushant Singh Rajput Was MURDERED’ Autopsy Staff Makes A SHOCKING Claim; Reveals, ‘There Were Marks Of Beating On His Body’
He went on to state that the Dil Bechara star had spoken to him about being worried about these things as it affected him and that Sushant could not handle the pressure. “Industry mein politics humesha hota hai but it gets dirtier as you climb the ladder of success. I never had an issue as I was stubborn and thick-skinned. He wasn’t and thus could not manage the pressure. He had spoken to me about being worried about these things as it affected him, Manoj further asserted.
Calling Sushant a ‘pure soul’, the 54-year-old star also explained that if anyone wants to be a Manoj Bajpayee, there is no politics but if one wants to be a star there would be a lot of competition.”Anyone who enters the field to be a star would try their best to clinch that position. However, he couldn’t bear the same. I have realised that he was a pure soul and andar se baccha tha (was a kid at heart). He could not understand the manipulation that was needed,” Bajpayee stated.
