Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee is currently basking in the success of the sequel to Amazon Prime Videos' 'The Family Man'. The actor plays Srikant Tiwari - a doting father and an intelligence officer trying to balance his personal and professional life and be there for his family.
While Srikant's 'sham' marriage has become the talk of the town since the release of the series, here's all you need to know about Manoj Bajpayee's wife Shabana Raza:
Manoj Bajpayee is married to actress Shabana Raza also known as Neha Bajpayee. They tied the knot in 2006 and have a daughter - Ava Nayla.
Shabana is an Indian film actress and film producer. She was launched by filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra in 'Kareeb'. The 1998 film starred Bobby Deol opposite Shabana.
The actress then featured in Ajay Devgan's romantic drama 'Hogi Pyaar Ki Jeet'. She has also played Hrithik Roshan's love interest in 2000 film 'Fiza', which also starred Karisma Kapoor and Jaya Bachchan.
In 2008, Neha told IANS, "I've always been passionate about acting. But I couldn't go role hunting from door-to-door in producers' homes. Maybe that was a drawback in me. After a while, when the right roles stopped coming, I withdrew from acting and was just happy being Mrs. Manoj Bajpai."
"But it didn't really matter. Manoj and I have known each other for 10 years. I met him right after Kareeb was released. And since then we've been together. We're individuals and yet a compatible couple," she said.
