Also, Manoj Bajpayee talking to Humans of Bombay said, “Initially, it was tough–I rented a chawl with 5 friends & looked for work, but got no roles. Once, an AD tore my photo & I’ve lost 3 projects in a day. I was even told to ‘get out’ after my 1st shot. I didn’t fit the ideal ‘hero’ face–so they thought I’d never make it to the big screen. All the while, I struggled to make rent & at times even a vada pav was costly.” ALSO READ: Bambai Main Ka Ba: Manoj Bajpayee's Bhojpuri Rap Number Is Exactly What This Weekend Needed -Video
