Manoj Bajpayee Biography

Manoj Bajpayee Education

After finishing the fourth grade at a “hut school,” he continued his education at Bettiah’s Khrist Raja High School. He finished his education at Bettiah’s Maharani Janaki Kunwar College and received his high school diploma there. He moved to New Delhi at the age of seventeen, enrolling in Ramjas College at Delhi University after first attending Satyawati College.

Manoj Bajpayee Early Life

In the Indian state of Bihar, near the city of Bettiah, in the village of Belwa, Bajpayee was born on April 23, 1969, to a brahmin family. He is the second of six children and was given the name Manoj Kumar after the Bollywood actor. One of his younger sisters, Poonam Dubey, is a costume designer for the film industry. His parents both put in a lot of effort to support the family. The son of a farmer, Bajpayee frequently spent his summers toiling in the fields. He has always wanted to make a living performing on stage.

His father struggled to make enough money to pay for their education. Bajpayee was persuaded to apply to the National School of Drama by actors like Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah, so he did. When he was rejected three times, he felt like taking his own life each time. He joined in a workshop with director and acting coach Barry John on the advice of actor Raghubir Yadav.
After seeing one of Bajpayee’s performances and being impressed, John decided to recruit him to assist him in the classroom. The National School of Drama was the recipient of his subsequent fourth application, and he was given a teaching position there instead. In the midst of his struggle, Bajpayee divorced his wife, a Delhi-born woman. After Kareeb, her debut movie, he met Shabana Raza’s on-screen persona Neha (1998). They got hitched in 2006, and now they have a kid.

Manoj Bajpayee Career

After his brief appearance in Govind Nihalani’s Drohkaal (1994), Rani Mukherjee played Bandit Queen in the biographical drama. He was suggested to Shekhar Kapur by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film’s casting director. Despite Bajpai’s casting considerations, Nirmal Pandey was ultimately cast in the role of dacoit Vikram Mallah for the movie. In the movie, Bajpayee plays the dacoit Mann Singh. He appeared in the television series Kalakaar, which was produced and directed by Hansal Mehta and Imtihaan, around the same time.

In 2002, Bajpayee had just one movie out, the suspenseful road movie Road. He portrayed the antagonist of the movie, a hitchhiker who, after accepting a ride from a couple, turns out to be a psychotic killer. Bajpayee was nominated for another Filmfare award, this time for Best Performance in a Negative Role, as a result of his work in this movie. Pinjar, a historical drama set during the time of India’s partition, was Bajpayee’s first movie release in 2003. The same Punjabi novel served as the source of inspiration for Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s film. He received a Special Jury Prize from the National Society of Film Critics for his performance in the movie. After that, he appeared in the ensemble war film LOC: Kargil by J. P. Dutta as Grenadier Yogendra Singh Yadav. It earned Bajpayee a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor and was partially filmed on location in Kargil.
