I don’t just write, I read too

I haven’t seen anyone as big as Michael Jackson ever. MJ, a star that was known everywhere, be it America or just another lane of my village. A controversial life without the loved ones, a lonesome singer in search of love and a successful career is what defines Michael Jackson. Now that he’s no more, there’s a void of losing such a talent. We may not be able to witness a star of his potential in the times to come. May his soul rest in peace and may God bless his children with good health and security.

In my last post I promised to reply to people’s comments and I’m very happy that people read my blog and give their opinions about the same.

In my post “Congested Mumbai” some readers agreed to what I said and I thank them for that. Actually I’m a bit innocent when it comes to civil engineering and may not have a sure solution for this but I’m sure that if experts in the field contemplate, they may come up with an effective solution.

In some post of mine, Mr. Irshad Ali and Mr. Vijay Wadnere asked me if I read others’ blogs or just mine. To them I’d like to say that I usually don’t get a chance to read all the blogs but whenever I do, I make sure I read them.
Also, Sandhya Arya in a post commented about regionalism. I think regionalism is a serious issue and it should be lamented. Politicians just care about their vote bank. I have so many friends who are Marathis and I mix up with common people. Everyone detests what happened and we have openly criticized about it on TV and newspapers. If anyone takes law in hand, he should be punished. We can’t sort it out by fighting with each other on this whole topic.

I wrote some posts while I was shooting in Karjat for my film Jail. During this, Rani Patrik commented on the post asking for something more than just Karjat. So let me mention here, that I’m no more in Karjat now, in fact, I’ve just moved to Hyderabad for shooting a friend’s Telugu film. The experience has been great. People here are very hard working and the food is awesome. It has been almost two and a half years since I left smoking and hence it’s even more exciting to explore new cuisine everywhere. I believe, food is an integral part of any region’s tradition and it encompasses the whole history. Rani ji, if you ever happen to come to Hyderabad, make sure you eat at a restaurant called ‘Anjpar’ in Panchguta. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the delicacies served on a banana leaf.

Also, looking at the reactions of some readers, it seems that some continue to take discussions forward to find solutions to a problem. Hemant Kumar, Girjesh Rao, Rajeev Ranjan, Anil Kant, Satish Pancham, Ajay Kumar Jha, Sagar Nahar, Pukhraj, Yayavar and others keep encouraging my efforts by commenting on my blog. It’s not however possible to take all names but thanks to all of you.

Some readers wanted to know about my upcoming films. My films are- Acid Factory, Jail and Rajneeti. We are working on all these projects and my films start releasing in September. Please do see them. I enjoyed working for them and I’m sure you too will enjoy watching them.

With this…
Manoj Bajpayee

इस प्रविष्टि के हिन्दी रूप पर तो लोगों की टिप्पणियाँ भरी पड़ी हैं, यहाँ सन्नाटा छाया है. तो सोचा कि चलिए यहाँ ही टीप दूं हिन्दी में.

एक आग्रह है - क्या आप कभी बताएंगे कि आपका ब्लॉग हिन्दी में ज्यादा पढ़ा जाता है या अंग्रेजी में ? और अंग्रेजी में ज्यादा पढ़ा जाता है तो अंग्रेजी भाषी लोग टिप्पणियाँ देने मे कंजूसी करते हैं शायद...

Hi Manoj..your blogs are honest and very humane..Being from Bihar I have been a fan of u since your earlier films..But later films of urs which i was eagerly waiting for never released like The Whisperers, Hanan, Return to Rajapur..Where can I watch these films..I was there Osians but I could not get the tickets for Return to Rajapur.
Secondly, I feel You are the most talented actor in Hindi films..but your talent has not been tapped.Films like Omkara, Maqbool, Haasil, movies by Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bharadwaj, Tigmanshu Dhuliya needs actors like you..I hope you continue to give us good films and may God bless you.

Hi Manoj,
Recently I started reading your blog, you are not only good writer but you are very good social worker. I like your blog very much. I am your die heart fan. I like to watch your movies but I am very hopeless because now you are not doing much Hindi movies i have my personal list of true actors in bollywood Irfan Khan, Ashotosh Rana , KK Menen and Manoj Banjpayee.only two actor are still doing movies but you and Ashotosh Rana are not doing any Hindi movies so please again in silver screen with some nice movies like Shool.



plz be frequent to write post.
I know u are a busy person but writing once in a while does not make sense.
nyway keep doing good films and writing interesting things.
what about writing some post about urself...i mean ur life, family, ur like,dislike etc.
Akki is doing that.

Came to ur blog after knowing that u wrote something against RGV...I have been following rgv blog right from the day he started it and never saw anything wrong written about u..After reading ur post I am sorry to say that..I only see ur immaturity in understanding relationships...and not only that, I can clearly see what's wrong between you too and whom to blame...sorry that I had to say this..

Do remember no one can be perfect..just learning from the past experiences makes one superior.

The veracity of the iconic stature of Michael Jackson is beyond contemplation , though he had his scylla and charybdis as a virtuoso . The throb of the multitudes , yet the bette noire of a few , his untimely demise has created a colossal void .
Nevertheless , i just realized that ( when infinity is subtracted from infinity , infinity still remains infinity there is always infinite scope for improvement , no matter how good you are in any field )

Manoj bhai, reading about "Rajneeti", I am sure your country cousins like me would love to know how was your experience working with Prakash Jha, another illustrious son of the soil.
