Manoj Bajpayee in recent times had opened up about the online debate about the existence of nepotism in Bollywood. Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the senior actor in conversation with Pinkvilla.com, mentioned how he thinks he did not achieve much at the age of 34, which the Sushant had already achieved in life at such an early age. Manoj, who worked with Sushant in Sonchiriya that released in the year 2019, was all praise for the actor for being down to earth, his acting prowess, and so on.
Talking about the late actor’s achievements at the age of 34, he said, “All of us have our highs and lows and emotions. Sushant was no different. I don't think I am as talented as that. I don't think I am as intelligent and as bright as he used to be. I don't think I had achieved anything till the age of 34, what he achieved, as compared to his achievements. I feel that my achievements are very very small. That is how I remember him. I don't remember him not only as a good human being.”
He further spoke about him for being grounded to his roots, as well as someone with excellent dancing prowess and his cool quotient. Not forgetting to compliment his charming smile.
He says, “I remember him as somebody who came from Patna and carried the rootedness with him with all the dancing abilities, with all the coolness and charming smile. He was a small-town guy inside. There was a small town Patna boy inside him. That I used to relate quite a lot.” ALSO READ: Sushant Singh Rajput Suicide: Shekhar Suman Questions The Final Post-Mortem Report; Asks Fans To Raise Voice For Reinvestigation
