Manoj Bajpayee Talked About His Relationship With Sharmila Tagore
In his latest movie, Manoj Bajpayee is sharing the screen with veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and definitely, it would have been a great experience. When asked about the kind of tuning he had with her, he shared an anecdote from their first meeting on the set.
He explained that Sharmila ji is a shy person who takes some time to get comfortable in a room full of strangers. Unaware of that, he started to express his excitement about working with her and talked about all the movies he loved. Reacting to his excitement, she asked him to calm down and relax a bit. After that, he started to hum her songs subconsciously.
He started singing them all the time until she ultimately came, pulled his ear and asked him to shut up. It is a funny memory that they share and really cherish.
