Manoj Bajpayee, who garnered acclaim for his diverse roles in 2023 with releases like “Gulmohar”, “Sirf Ek Bandaa Kafi Hai”, and “Joram”, is poised to kick off the new year with “Killer Soup”. The series, known for its dark allure, thrusts the spotlight on Bajpayee in a unique way.
The actor, known for seeking challenging roles, emphasized that his choices stem from personal excitement rather than a desire to impress.
Speaking about “Killer Soup”, Bajpayee, while talking to Times Now, lauded director Abhishek Chaubey as the best contemporary director in the country, comparing him to Shekhar Kapur for providing actors ample space for innovation.
Without revealing much about the plot, the series features Bajpayee and Konkona Sen as an immoral couple on a murderous spree.
Addressing the intimate scenes, Bajpayee said that these scenes are organic to the plot. He further said that why are we discussing kissing scenes of movies, when the world has moved to the moon!
Looking ahead, he expressed humility about the potential impact of “Killer Soup” and shared insights into his upcoming projects, including his co-produced film ‘Bhaiyyaji,’ directed by Apoorv Singh Karki, scheduled for release in April.
Bajpayee expressed pride in the film and encouraged audiences to raise their expectations, pledging to meet them with his performances in the coming year, driven by his self-imposed high standards.
