But Manoj is just not biting the bait. “You know me. I never work for money. I am not saying money is not important. I’ve struggled enough to know that without money you are a nobody.  So yes  I do value money. But not at the cost of my integrity and sincerity. I cannot be dishonest with my work. It would kill me.”

If Manoj had a  likelihood to relive his life he would deal with the years of battle in another way.  He would name a distinct set of administrators to present him work.  Some Hindi movies he did again then had been solely to run his kitchen, which he says he mustn’t have executed.

I used to be doing workshops,  theatre, assembly associates, going to my native village, and spending a variety of time with my household. I  now notice that each part in a single’s life, regardless of how troublesome, is a preparation for the following part.
