Manoj Bajpayee On Wife, Shabana's Reaction To Him Doing Embarrassing Films: 'Yeh Kya Bakwaas Hai'

A three-time National Award winner, he carved his own niche in Indian cinema, after hailing from a small town in Bihar, and absolutely no connections. Over his incredible career over decades, Manoj has been a part of some pathbreaking films, such as Satya, Satyagraha, Aarakshan, Pinjar, Veer Zara, Zubeidaa, among countless others. Speaking about his personal life, Manoj is married to former actress, Shabana Raza and the duo is blessed with a daughter, Ava.

Manoj Bajpayee talks about his wife, Shabana Raza getting upset with him for choosing wrong films

Manoj Bajpayee is currently busy with the promotions of his latest thriller, Joram. During an interview with The Lallantop, Manoj shared some candid reactions of his wife, Shabana Raza has, upon seeing his films. The actor revealed how his wife is always upset that he doesn’t share the scripts with her before accepting the offer, and the film ends up to being something to her dislike. He mentioned:

“Shabana has the complaint that I don’t share scripts with her. Because I like giving surprises to Shabana. I wait for the reaction and emotions that follow after surprising her. The biggest compliments and criticism I get are by Shabana. So whatever she feels after seeing the film should be first. So only I don’t share scripts and she complains a lot about it. There have been fights about the same.”
