Manoj Bajpayee’s performance as the Mumbai Gangster in the film Satya changed his career. Not only did the film make him famous, but he also received several awards for his performance. The film’s popularity meant that filmmakers only offered him parts as a villain after the film came out. The actor held firm and rejected all the lucrative offers and held out for the kind of parts that he wanted to do. Besides Manoj, the Ram Gopal Varma film also starred JD Chakravarthy, Urmila Matondkar, Saurabh Shukla, Aditya Shrivastava, and Paresh Rawal. The film was written by Saurabh and Anurag Kashyap. Ahead of the release of his upcoming film Gulmohar, the actor spoke about how the film made him famous. He recalled a mall visit in which the security couldn’t contain the fans who wanted to meet ‘Bhiku Mhatre’. Manoj also worked with Ram again in Kaun (1999) and Road (2002). He was last seen in the Zee5 thriller Dial 100 in 2021. His next film Gulmohar, with Sharmila Tagore, Simran, and Suraj Sharma, will be released on March 3 on Disney+ Hotstar.
