Creative minds can't be bent or broken by threats, says Manoj Bajpayee!
Wed May 16th, 2018
Well-known Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee tells attacks on movies and filmmakers don't bother him as creative minds cannot be bent or broken.
The spate of incidents involving protests against movies and filmmakers in India doesn't seem to have upset Manoj, who told that filmmakers are born rebels who choose the creative line in face of harsh opposition from their families and society and hence don't bend to protests and opposition of any kind.
"I don't think any creative person would be fearful enough to stop making films just because some hooligans have become a problem. They will not. Creative persons have chosen this field by revolting against the norms of the society. They have been rebellious since their childhood. Their parents may have wanted them to become something else, doing a normal 9 to 6 job, but they opted for uncertain world of the cinema. So they are used to protests, they are used to obstructions, used to restrictions. They have left everything to do what they are doing now. They are creative because they are rebels," he told.
"You cannot bend or break them. I don't know of a single film or form of art that has been abandoned due to protests or opposition," Manoj, here to promote his forthcoming movie "Bhonsle" at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival, said to a columnist.
