We don't appreciate great talent when they're alive: Manoj Bajpayee!

Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee says that we do not appreciate great talent when they are alive and usually appreciate it only after experiencing its loss. He thinks that this is something which is always happening in Bollywood. The people with a great talent does not get appreciated when they are alive, but the people usually say a great thins once they are passed away.

He said this on the demise of the director ‘Kundan Shah’, which was very famous the making the movie ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’. He says that Kundan was a very great director of his times. His thinking was amazing and that is evident from his movies like ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’, ‘Kya Kehna’ and much more. Those movies were incredible and they did not belong to genres or comedy but the movies have talked about the things beyond that also.

During the promotional event of his upcoming movie titled ‘Rukh’, Manoj says that they talked about the social taboos and they have also questioned the unhealthy practices of their society. He has never made the movie only on the entertainment but his movies also gave all of us the important messages. However, the saddest part is that his movies were not appreciated much enough when he was alive.

Talking about his upcoming powerful drama and mystery movie ‘Rukh’, which was directed by the director Atanu Mukherjee and the movie is a part of the inaugural Drishyam-Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab 2015. The movie features actor Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role along with Adarsh Gourav, Smita Tambe, and Kumud Mishra.

The makers of the movie have mentored the story from the start of the Drishyam-Sundance Screenwriters lab and they feel very happy and proud that the movie ‘Rukh’ has taken such a good shape and they just can’t wait to show this to the audience. The movie is said to be based on the real-life events and characters. However, the movie deals with themes we can all easily relate to.

Actor Manoj Bajpayee speaks about the debutant director Atanu Mukherjee, Manoj says that he is very happy that he got an opportunity to work with him. However, he has previously worked with many directors, but after working with the director Atanu he says that now he is his one of the favourite directors. The way he conveys the story to Manoj was something very unique, different and very simple. Manoj says that it is very much true that simple things are actually more complex and it is very difficult to achieve that thing when somebody can simply and easily communicate the story through your work and Atanu has almost done with his first movie.

The film “Rukh” is all set to release on October 27, 2017.
