Surpassing the stardom of many Bollywood actors and giving life to unique, intense, and unconventional characters, Manoj Bajpayee’s talent is incomparable. His portrayal of genuineness in every role resonates with the audience. He has delivered many iconic performances over his long career, and in one of the episodes, he joined our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani, and Siddharth Ambalayan on this Sunday Brunch X The Bombay Journey episode. Head to the video to learn all about his travel stories, love for movies, and more!
This Is Why Manoj Bajpayee Chose An SUV Over A Sedan
When Manoj Bajpayee told us how punctual he is with his commitments, we weren’t surprised. He also revealed that he still takes an auto every time he is running late and wants to beat the tiresome Mumbai traffic. No matter if he travels in a luxurious car or an auto, he believes that these are simply modes of transport and until he is reaching places he needs to, he doesn’t bother about what means he chose.
Next, we asked him if he preferred to drive an SUV or a sedan. Putting it very logically, he chose to go with the SUV. He shared that he has one because it is big enough to take him to places, to fit his daughter and her friends, whenever required, and to fit the load of suitcases his family brings after a month-long vacation. Well, if that’s not a reason to go with an SUV, what is?
He Called Taylor Swift His ‘Jaani Dushman’
For a fun twist, we decided to play Drive Metre with Manoj Bajpayee, and it made some interesting revelations about the actor’s life. First, we asked him if he prefers to take beach trips or mountain vacations, and he shared that even though he prefers mountains, he ends up going to the beach because his family wants to. Next, he chose road trips over taking flights and revealed that he also prefers to have a driver along so that he can make the most of the scenery and architecture around him.
We asked him what kind of music he listens to while on road trips, and he had a long list of favourites. But does he really get to listen to it? Apparently, not! He shared that Taylor Swift is his jaani dushman because every time he is listening to his favourite old melodies, his daughter comes in and switches to a Taylor Swift song. Well, that’s a Swiftie in the making!
