Manoj Bajpayee discloses Sushant Singh Rajput was sensitive towards blind articles

Recalling his encounter with Sushant, the ace actor revealed that the latter struggled to deal with those in authority.


Manoj Bajpayee has never shied away from discussing his hardships or the prejudice that outsiders encounter in the business. He has also made no secret of the hardships his late friend Sushant Singh Rajput had while working in the film business. Manoj recently talked about how Sushant was affected by the unfavorable media treatment of him in an interview with Siddharth Kannan.


Manoj stated, “Sushant was very vulnerable when it came to blind articles. He was a very good human being and it is only a good person who can get affected by these things. He would often come to me and ask how to deal with these things, I used to tell him not to take these things seriously because I have gone through such situations before, and I am still bearing the brunt of such articles against me.”

He mentioned, “I told him to handle people whose films are working, who are in power. I would handle such people in a different way. I would tell my friends to convey to them that I would come and beat them up. What’s important is that the message is conveyed. Sushant used to laugh and would say, ‘Sir aap he kar sakte ho, mein nahi kar sakta ye (Sir only you can do it, I can’t). But he was troubled by blind articles. He was a very sensitive and intelligent person.”

Manoj is now gearing up for his next project, Bhaiyya Ji, a criminal action thriller. He appears in an action-avatar as featured in the movie’s trailer.  The film Bhaiyya Ji will be out on May 24.
