The Family Man Has Been Most Difficult And Enjoyable Both: Manoj Bajpayee
Manoj Bajpayee has given his 25 years to the film industry and an actor with that much experience is expected to have done some moving and inspiring roles. With Manoj Bajpayee, we already know what a gifted and talented actor he is and after all this time, the actor has shared how he is doing the most exceptional role that he has ever played. He will be playing the role of “Shrikant Tripathi”, a family guy who is living in two kinds of worlds every day.
Manoj Bajpayee’s show, The Family Man will start streaming from September 20. The series will be a 10-part Amazon Prime Video series. It will also star Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Neeraj Madhav, Sharad Kelkar, Sunny Hinduja and Shreya Dhanwantary among others.
The story revolves around a man who lives with his wife and daughter. Being the only man of the house he finds himself cornered by them as they make fun of him and disrespect him. Just like every coin, the character lives a second life, a life at his office where he is respected by everyone for the crucial work that he does and takes his decisions. Being a part of two worlds doesn’t come without challenges and problems. The actor is all set to show everyone how his character deals with it.
“In 25 years you get to do so many roles. I have done gangster films so many times. But the family man, I would say has been difficult and enjoyable, both.” Manoj Bajpayee is a family man in real life and then playing a character that is somehow similar and yet so different than his real life is a challenge. He also added, “It is difficult because of 10 episodes. So you have to know the episodes in backwards, I prefer to read it. I try to visit and re-visit all the time. For 5 months you are absorbed into doing one thing, preparation time to the shooting time. You’re into it all the time.” He also shared about his character, “He’s funny at times, he is quirky, he is moody. He is everything.”
