National Award winning actor Manoj Bajpayee says that he has compromised on remuneration for good roles all his life, but he will not do it anymore! It’s noted that the actor rose to fame with his performance in the film ‘Satya’ for which he also got the National Award, and the talented actor later proved his mettle in films including ‘Shool’, ‘Pinjar’ and ‘Zubeidaa’ and the most recent ones being ‘Raajneeti’, ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ and ‘Chakravyuh’.

Revealing that he is now trying to balance good roles with good money, the actor said in a recent interview, “I will work only when I’d get the money I demand. I made this decision because for a long time I worked without money in the name of good roles. Now it’s payback time.”

The 45-year-old would soon be seen on the big screen in the film ‘Tevar’, which has Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles. Talking about the upcoming film and his role in the Amit Sharma-directed film, Manoj said that he is playing the role of Gajendar Bhaiya from Mathura, whose brother is a politician. Talking about it he said, “This guy is a bit of a romantic person, he believes in love. He falls in love with Sonakshi Sinha’s character, but she does not like him. So ‘Tevar’ is all about the twists and turns that follow.


“I don’t consider films as comedies, serious or emotional, I just see the script and the character. ‘Tevar’ has romance, comedy and everything else,” he added. ‘Tevar’ is set to hit the theatersthis Friday.
