“But we missed our flight. So we had to drive down a much longer route. Fortunately my father is on the road to recovery. Since he is aging the process of healing is taking longer. My brother takes good care of him. I wish  I  could be  there with him more  often,”says the Family Man hero currently basking  in  the  super-success of  the series that has taken the country by storm.

In  2007 Manoj was travelling to his village in Bihar. The state of the roads being what it is, his car plunged into a ditch. His back took the entire impact. Manoj  couldn't move his hand. For eight months he was in bed.

Says Manoj, “I  am very close to  both my  parents.They named me  after their favourite actor Manoj Kumar. My father had to struggle to put my siblings and  I  through our basic education. From my childhood I dreamt  of being an actor. My father supported me in  my dream. That’s how a boy from Bettiah with no  connections in the film industry dared to venture into cinema.”

Though  Manoj’s father  (Radhakant Bajpai) likes Manoj’s performance in  all his  films, the senior Bajapai’s  favourites  are  Satya, Shool, Pinjar, 1971 and  yes, The  Family Man.
