Apurva Asrani: If Manoj Bajpayee and my family weren’t around, I might have given up and opted to take my own life
Sushant Singh Rajput‘s suicide has opened up a can of worms in Bollywood. People from all walks of life are talking about the ills faced by many celebs at the hands of the more powerful. One of the most popular names in the movie-making business, Apurva Asrani, has also had his fair share of troubles fighting against the system. In his blog, he pens about how he has had the good fortune of having Manoj Bajpayee and his family around him.
Apurva opens up about how he stood up for himself and thereby faced a lot of shunning away by the film industry folks. In one of the parts from his blog, he writes, “Fortunately, some producers did reach out to me and offered me work. One of them was Zoya Akhtar, who breathed hope into me by giving me ‘Made In Heaven’ to edit. Also, Manoj Bajpayee, the lead actor of both ‘Satya’ and ‘Aligarh’, stood by me. He publicly endorsed my work on both those seminal films when it mattered the most.”
Apurva went on to stress on the same by adding, “If Manoj Bajpayee hadn’t stood by me, and If I didn’t have the kind of familial support around me, I might have given up the fight and opted to take my own life. I was lucky. Not all are.”
The whole blog is an opening up about his travails with the bigwigs and powerful people of Bollywood, with the backdrop of how Sushant Singh Rajput went on to commit suicide despite the fact that he had a huge fan following and his films, baring aside a few, were also doing great at the ticket windows.
