Unlike most of the celebrities, Manoj Bajpayee couldn't be at home when the nationwide lockdown was imposed in India. The actor was in Uttarakhand, shooting for his next film. In a recent tete-a-tete with a leading daily, the actor spoke about being stranded in Uttarakhand and how he has no qualms about his current situation as his family is with him.
On April 23, the actor turned a year older and celebrated his birthday in the most unique way. He said, "The property we are staying at, the people here made sure that it goes off well in whatever way they could manage. They decorated with some of the balloons lying here. My nine-year-old daughter and wife made cards for me, those were the personal touches I loved. My director (of the film I was shooting for) wrote a beautiful poem, which completely touched me."
He further added, "I spend all day with my family and the unit people, with a lot of laughter. Then we had the cake and food we all cooked together. That's how this birthday went, unique and fantastic. It's going to be quite memorable."
In the same interview, Bajpayee also condemned the brutal attacks on the healthcare workers of our nation.
He said, "I don't know who are these guys attacking doctors and nurses, who are our true heroes. The health sector are the frontline warriors, who are trying to make each and every person feel safe and healthy. The attackers should be ashamed of themselves, they can't just go ahead and attack, let alone even think of it. I strongly condemn this act of violence against frontline workers. I cannot understand it, and the law should take it's own course."
We totally agree with the Satya actor and hope that people stop tormenting the nation's healthcare workers and observe the lockdown diligently.
