Manoj Bajpayee shares two cents on film remakes 

Although Bollywood loves remaking old movies or movies from another industries, most of the real thespians do not appreciate this practice. Manoj Bajpayee is also one of them. He is credited to be the first of actors who revolutionized the Hindi cinema with their unconventional and non traditional acting styles. Bajpayee realises the filmmakers' and audience's affinity towards remakes but he believes there are betye stories to be told.

He said, "First of all, I don’t think that anybody should remake films. We have so many stories floating around and just look at people, go experience their life and you’ll have a story, everyone has a great story to tell in this country." Giving instances of his old films, Manoj added, "You can actually make Shool, Satya, also make 1971 all over again. So, all of my films have the possibility of getting remade. It’s always about the director how he wants to do the interpretation of it.”

About his new found fan base, the actor added, "This generation was not really aware of my previous works. Now, 15- or 16-year-olds come to me, wanting a picture. That’s something I have not enjoyed before. The contribution of The Family Man to my career is that it introduced me to a new fan base.”
