Manoj Bajpayee is an incredible actor who needs no introduction! We were fortunate enough to do this exciting episode of our special 99th Sunday Brunch with him. Manoj joined our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani, on this episode and chatted all about his food habits, favourite food dishes, career journey and more. He talked about his food preferences and how it evolved over the years. Watch the entire episode linked below to learn more about his exciting lifestyle.
Manoj Bajpayee Shared His Earlier Food Choices
Manoj Bajpayee told us that it was difficult for him to transition to intermittent fasting. So for the first week of following no-dinner rules, it was difficult for him. Hence to slowly transition he made slight changes in his eating habits. He shared that he used to eat dinner in huge portions so during the evening the hunger pangs hit him hard.
He told us that if he was extremely hungry then he would eat two healthy biscuits and then drink a lot of water. Wait, a lot of people follow this when they are extremely hungry, me being one of them. I even add condiments or random stuff like bhujiya and make a biscuit sandwich. Samesies, Manoj!
We Learned About His Strict Morning Rituals
Manoj Bajpayee shared with us his extreme food habits and how he skipped dinner for more than a decade. We wanted to know about his morning routine and did get a detailed version of it. He told us that he gets up at 5 in the morning every day and begins his day with an hour-long yoga and meditation practice. The world is a lot calmer at 5 AM and the thoughts align well for meditation. But then also he lives in Mumbai and the city never truly sleeps, so he might meditate harder than usual despite all the noise and chaos.
Manoj Bajpayee takes his coffee and runs for an hour in the park nearby. He doesn’t stop there; the morning ritual comes to an end by doing freehand exercises at the society’s gym for the next hour! Further, he also shared that he doesn’t alter this morning schedule in any manner, even during morning shoots. To avoid having to change his routine, he wakes up an hour earlier on shoot days. Talk about discipline man!
