Veteran actor Manoj Bajpayee is presently busy with the promotions of his forthcoming film, Aiyaary. In the film, the actor essays the role of an army officer. The movie also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet in lead roles.
Considered as one of the best actors in Bollywood, Manoj Bajpayee feels sad that acting is considered as the easiest profession in India. During a chat with a tabloid, he told, “If you are doing prosthetics then it is physically very torturous. It is mentally exhausting at times, especially when you do films like Aligarh and Gali Guliyan. Only a loonie guy can afford to go through that (referring to pain) again and again. We actors are known as loonies. To go through somebody else’s pain and feel that pain and misery for two months is not an easy thing. That is why I always say acting is the most difficult thing in the world, and sadly in our country, it is taken as the most easy thing.’’
He further told, “So the independent cinema is where we get to be a part of the real stories, characters. Those kind of performances are heavy.”
Speaking about his co-star Sidharth Malhotra, he revealed, ‘’Sidharth is a very receptive person, he wants to do good work. He is in competitive world of mainstream cinema. I don’t belong to that area… I sometimes go there, do some work and come back, to stay there and compete is a difficult thing. I have a lot of admiration for him,” he said.
Film Aiyaary is slated to release on February 9, 2018.
