I’m not the gangster in ‘Jail’

I’m just back from Bhopal after shooting ‘Rajneeti’. This was the last stage of the schedule and the next schedule is due in the first week of September when all the other actors would be available. Bhopal was an overall good experience and going out of Mumbai felt like taking a free breathe for the first time ever.

The shooting of my second film ‘Jail’ to be directed by Madhur Bhandarkar will start from the second week of April. Contrary to the rumors I would like to state that I’m not playing the gangster in the film. As of now I’ll be unable to reveal the details of my character, also, I’m off late working on my character for ‘Jail’.

Meanwhile, my parents and niece visited my place. I and my wife Shabana are very happy to be with them and are ensuring their comfortable stay in Mumbai.

Amid all this there are elections coming up and I’ve been following them up. It feels good to know that my friend Prakash Jha is contesting from Betia, Bihar. My father is very happy for him too and thinks that he’ll definitely win. According to my father, Prakash ji has worked a lot for the people of Betia and has spent a lot of time with them too. I think he deserves a win if he has worked selflessly for the betterment of people and I hope that Prakash ji not only wins the Lok Sabha but also prove himself as far as the wishes and aspirations of people are considered.

Someone asked me once if it fine for the people from the film industry to come into politics? I said, “It’s thousand times better than to elect a criminal. A film person is in someway or the other attached with the common masses and is sensitive to the feelings and needs of the people.

I hereby request all the voters to not go for party name and their symbols as such, rather choose the deserving candidate who in reality possesses the abilities to be their representative. I personally feel that elections are not a testing time for the candidates but for the voters actually. I wish that we use this opportunity and right intelligently and choose a civilized, smart, honest and just representative for ourselves and our Nation.

With this hope...

Manoj Bajpayee

Dear Manoj,

Mr. Prakash Jha will make a difference in Bihar, I have my reservations. Though its good to see that sensitive people are coming & participating in politics.
Being young (younger than you atleast,I am only 35),a bihari ,architect by profession & coming from Darbhanga,I strongly feel for Bihar. Where we are today in world (infrastructure wise) nowhere. I recently visited Dubai & Sanghai,I am afraid but they are hundred year ahead of us (Specially Bihar).
I have seen length & breadth of Bihar, you know we have so much of natural wealth but still we are nowhere close to these guys not even closer to our own Gujarat & Maharashtra. I am optimistic that things will change, sincerely hope that to contribute in some way.
Anyway brother, you are a fantastic actor, I am not a movie buff, still I see most of your movies, partly because we share same state & partly because you are a brilliant actor. I loved you in kaun, a very vague movie in artistic sense but a very well rendered character.
I will look forward for your role in “Rajniti” & “jail”. All the best.
Ashutosh Jha

Practice examination for Marathi medium SSC students
With an objective to eliminate the examination fear among students appearing for the forthcoming SSC board examination and to develop confidence within them, Navi Mumbai Shikshan Sankul, in coordination with the NCP, conducted a practice examination in the month of December, especially for the Marathi medium schools.
The dignitaries present at the felicitation function were Thane Guardian Minister and MLA Ganesh Naik, Mayor Anjani Bhoir, Maharashtra State Secondary and Higher Secondary Board, Mumbai Division chairperson Gurunath Kanthe, former Mayor Sanjeev Naik, NMMC Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik, Education Committee chairman Ravindra Ithape and other NCP corporators.
Speaking on the occasion, MP Supriya Sule said, “SSC board examination is the base of every student’s career. To make the most of the opportunity, it is important to take useful tips from experts. A teacher’s utmost dedication and selfless efforts in imparting quality education can mould the future of a student and guide them in the direction of prosperity.”
