Movies Manoj Bajpayee Could Have Been Part Of.

The Bollywood industry has certainly been one of the brilliant industries that are responsible for digging out some gems that have been majorly responsible for the success of the industry as well as entertaining the masses for ages.

And, amongst such brilliant actors, the Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee has garnered his position amongst one of the top-notch yet promising actors of the Bollywood industry who never fails to astound the audiences with his offbeat performances.

Whether it’s his performance in a short film or a cameo or a lead role in the film or rather a role in a web series, the actor has aced them all.

Recipient of several accolades amongst the fourth highest civilian honor Padma Shri, the actor hails from a small village of the West Champaran district in Bihar. 

Starting his breakthrough career in 1994 with the graphical drama film Bandit Queen, the actor emotions like a star and has never looked back since. While we certainly know about his brilliance and the exceptional roles played by the actor, it’s time to have a look at the films rejected by the actor:


Are you also amongst those who feel that the career of this actor would have certainly been enhanced and reached heights if he would have become a part of this film!? Well while the actor got a chance to add his brilliance to the blockbuster film Masaan, the latter was approached by the makers for playing a part in the film, however, things could not work out.

And if some rumors are to be believed it was not only the actor Manoj Bajpayee but Rajkumar Rao was also approached to play a part in the film, however, things could not work out well with him as well.


Well, this can be helmed as a brilliant decision taken by the actor following the movie having been tanked at the box office. With an ensemble cast of renowned actors of the industry, the makers wanted to cast the actor Manoj Bajpayee in the role played by Ravi Kishan; however, Manoj declined for the role and it eventually went to Ravi.


Now, who would have not dreamt of becoming a part of this cult classic!? Well, while these dreams could have been true for the actor Manoj Bajpayee, the latter rather settled for rejecting a prominent role in the film.

As per reports Manoj Bajpayee was approached for playing the prominent supporting role of chunni Babu in the film Devdas however, following the aspirations of the actor of not becoming a second fiddle or a sidekick in the film, Manoj Bajpayee rejected this role and it eventually went on to the actor Jackie Shroff who brilliantly pulled the character. 


Now, this can’t be said as the film was rejected by the actor but rather it was the makers who didn’t let him be a part of the film.

The actor Manoj Bajpayee was highly desperate and enthusiastic about playing the iconic role of Langda Tyagi in the film Omkara however the makers could not sign him up for the role following some financial reasons. Imagine the actor in this iconic role would have certainly been a great addition to the film. 


Becoming one of the brilliant movies ever made in the history of Bollywood, the blockbuster Dangal managed to engage the audiences to a greater extent and left the audiences teary-eyed.

And the movie had been taken to the next level if the negative role of National Sports Academy Coach had been played by the actor Manoj Bajpayee. Right!? But since the actor has always been seen in heroic roles, he was taken aback from taking up a negative role and didn’t want to paint his negative image amongst the fans. 

Rang De Basanti

A revolutionary story that managed to impress the audiences to a greater extent following its brilliant story, characters, and most importantly perfectly aligned actors. However, most of us might not have an idea about this film initially being decided to be made with an entirely different cast.

Initially, the role of Aamir Khan was offered to the actor Manoj Bajpayee and Siddharth’s role was offered to Vivek Oberoi. However, the film came to a halt after the original makers stepped out from the film. And, when finally worked upon, it came out with a fresh star cast. 

Darna Mana Hai

While there was no particularly focused Hero or heroine in this film yet the ensemble cast of several Bollywood actors showcased in various segments included the actor Sanjay Kapoor peering alongside the actress Shilpa Shetty.

This terrifying story could have been even more interesting if the actor Manoj Bajpayee would have agreed to play the role of Sanjay Kapoor.

While there was just a short stint of his character in the film, it would certainly have been pulled off brilliantly by the actor Manoj Bajpayee. What do you think?  


The Bollywood industry has always been underestimated trying their hands on the horror genre. While several movies have been created over years, only a handful of movies were able to scare the hell out of audiences.

And, amongst those, the Bollywood movie Bhoot starring Ajay Devgan and Urmila Matondkar in the lead roles managed to be named under one of the brilliant creations in this genre. W

hile this film could have been bagged by the actor Manoj Bajpayee, the latter the night to become a part of the film following a fall out with its director Ram Gopal Varma. Due to the same, the film went to the actor Ajay Devgan. 

Paan Singh Tomar

Regarded as one of the brilliant actors of the industry, the Irfan Khan starrer Paan Singh Tomar remains one of the best works of the actor.

However, as per some reports the actor, Manoj Bajpayee was highly desperate to play the lead role in the film however its director Tigmanshu declined upon this request and it finally went to the late actor Irrfan Khan.


While this movie failed to perform well at the box office it could certainly be regarded as one of the brilliant decisions taken by the actor Manoj Bajpayee for not being a part of this film.

The actor Manoj Bajpayee was approached and even signed for Boman Irani for his role in the film. However, the actor later backed out since he didn’t want to be seen playing such a small role. And, the film was bagged by Boman Irani.
