Manoj Bajpayee wants independent movies to become fashion in country
The actor cites maintaining relationships as the reason he did commercial films.
"I just hope independent films make money. I want independent movies should become a fashion in this country. I could easily afford not to do independent films but it is my passion for good cinema that I do it and I always wanted to be on the path of content and quality," Bajpayee told PTI.
Though he leans more towards indie films, Bajpayee has acted in conventional Bollywood potboilers like "Veer Zaara", "Bewafaa", "Shootout at Wadala", "Tevar" among others. The actor cites maintaining relationships as the reason he did commercial films.
"I am not regularly part of commercial films. This year I did 'Baaghi 2' and 'Satyameva Jayate' and then I don't have any hardcore commercial films lined up. I keep the distance from it because I like what I do in independent cinema or middle of the road films."
For the"Aiyaary" actor, doing mainstream entertainers is like going to the office.
His next release is "Satyameva Jayate" that touches upon the topic of corruption and molestation. Bajpayee says a today common man is troubled all the time in real life and sadly not much is done to prevent these things.
"Whatever films he is doing they are working, he is a lucky guy. I tell him that he should give me some luck."
The film is set for Independence Day release.
