Actor Manoj Bajpayee recently recalled the time being ignored by a journalist at an event when he was going through a ‘rough patch’ in his professional career, and how he still remembers the incident as a reminder to accept failure just the way we embrace success.
As per a report in HT, he recalled the incident that happened a few years ago saying, “I was going through a very rough patch at that time. Saare journalists bhi gayab ho gaye the, offers toh gayab ho hi gaye the (Not only did the offers disappear but the journalists too),” he said, telling the interviewer to not do what the journalist did with him, with anyone else. “Aisa please mat karna kisi ke saath, bhaiya, bohot bura lagta hai (Don’t do this with anyone else, it feels really bad).”
He talked about how being snubbed by the journalist ‘bit’ him for a couple of seconds before he quickly accepted it. He stated, “Jab main apne aap ko taiyaar kar raha hoon ki bhai ab yeh mujhse baat karega (When I was getting myself ready to talk to him), he turned his back to me as if he didn’t see me and he told the cameraman, ‘Yeah, yeah, that’s alright. Just switch it off now’. It kind of bit me for five seconds. After that I realised, nahi hai, ab woh samay chala gaya tera (your time has gone), you are not content for him. And I moved on. But I always remember that, not for any other reason but that when failure or downfall comes, you should be ready to accept it, embrace it as you embrace and accept your success. You should have the ability to treat it in the same fashion, as a part of your life.”
