In the vast and competitive world of Bollywood, there are certain actors who not only leave an indelible mark with their performances but also serve as an inspiration to their peers. One such actor is Shah Rukh Khan, who has conquered numerous obstacles and emerged as the undisputed superstar of the industry. Renowned actor Manoj Bajpayee couldn't help but admire Khan's journey, as he witnessed first-hand how the talented actor triumphed over the toughest challenges to reach the pinnacle of success.
Manoj Bajpayee recalls working with Shah Rukh Khan and seeing him lose everything at 26; says, “He rebuilt everything”
In a conversation with The Lallantop, Bajpayee asserted, “Jab bhi main aur Shah Rukh milte hain, zyada nahi milte hain, humari duniya alag hain, maine apni duniya banayi, usne apni. Humari zyada mulakat hoti nahi hain. Jab hum 19-20 saal ke the, humne 1.5 saal tak saath main kaam kiya tha. Woh jaan pehchaan hai aur izzat hai ek dusre ke liye (I don’t meet Shah Rukh too often, our worlds are different. We worked together for 1.5 years when we were 19-20-year-olds. We have mutual respect for each other).”
He further added, “Mujhe bohot khushi hoti hain usko uss mukaam pe dekh ke, jiss tarah ke duniya usne khadi ke apne liye. Ek vyakti jiska pura duniya ujadh chuka tha, 26 saal ke umar mein, aur uska pura parivaar ja chuka tha, phir usne apni duniya khadi ki, parivaar apna create kiya, apne liye itna bada naam, izaat banaya (I feel very happy to see him achieve this level of success. He had lost his family, rebuilt everything, from his career to his personal life).”
The Gangs Of Wasseypur actor expressed that his deep respect for SRK stems from the fact that he was among those close people, who observed Khan's journey through the highs and lows. Having personally witnessed Shah Rukh during his most challenging moments, Bajpayee emphasised that he could never nurture any resentment towards Khan's remarkable achievements.
Coming to the professional front, Bajpayee is awaiting the release of Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai, scheduled to release on May 23 on ZEE5. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh will be next seen in Jawan, which will be releasing on September 7.
