With three National Awards and many critically acclaimed films to his credit, Manoj Bajpayee says he is still looking for stories and roles that are extraordinary and explore an untapped side of the actor within him. Manoj Bajpayee, who has created a niche with many memorable projects across mediums such as Satya, Shool, Raajneeti, Aligarh, Gangs of Wasseypur movies and The Family Man series, said his search for unique roles is always ongoing. “I’ve been lucky enough to get really good offers. I want to go further and look for more interesting, extraordinary scripts and stories that people haven’t seen or seen yet. Roles that aren’t anywhere close to what I’ve done .The quest is always on and as the saying goes, it is always about your choices,” Manoj Bajpayee told PTI in an interview.

The actor admits that despite being in the business for many years, he still cannot predict the mood of the audience, apart from the fact that “they need a good story that can captivate and entertain them”. “And if it doesn’t do both, they’ll reject it immediately. They are unpredictable.

After working hard and with utmost honesty, one can only pray for its success and wish that the film connects with the audience,” he said.

Manoj Bajpayee calls himself someone who is critical and is not easily satisfied with what he does, but prefers to look forward to the next idea. “Most of the time I don’t watch my films, but there are times when I have to. At the time of the second (season or sequel) you have to watch the first one to be reminded of what you have done and what are the elements of the characters that you have to bring in all over again. When I look at it, I’m critical. I feel like I could do better in a lot of places. But what’s gone is gone at the end of the day.” he added.

The actor, 54, will be seen next Silence 2: The Night Owl Bar Shootoutthe sequel to his 2021 film Silence… Can you hear it?. He reprises the role of ACP Avinash Verma in the sequel, directed by Aban Bharucha Deohans, who also directed the first part.

Manoj Bajpayee praised Deohans as a “perfectionist”, who will never start a film if she is not completely ready for it. “She’s not someone who would want to show up on set just because there’s a franchise that gets the green light from the platform. We were both clear about it,” he said. The film also stars Prachi Desai, who returns as Inspector Sanjana.

The actor, known for films like Once upon a time in Mumbai, rock on!! And Azharcalled the experience of working with Manoj Bajpayee “absolutely priceless”.

“Even if you enroll somewhere, you’re never going to get the same kind of knowledge. Just being with him and observing him, that was fun in itself. There are things about (his acting) that come back to you later. It’s amazing and He is beautiful. He makes us feel comfortable. He’s just the nicest person to be around,” said Prachi Desai.

Silence 2: The Night Owl Bar Shootout also features Parul Gulati, Sahil Vaid and Dinkar Sharma. Produced by Zee Studios and Candid Creations, the film will premiere on ZEE5 on April 16.
