Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan and Manoj Bajpayee’s friendship go way back even before they became actors. The stars studied acting together at Barry John Acting Studio. Now, during a recent interaction, Manoj revealed interesting anecdotes with Shah Rukh about how they used to share cigarettes/beedis. ‘The Family Man 2‘ actor also shared that SRK was always a charmer and popular with girls in the group they ‘invaded’ together.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble Manoj said, “He was the only one who used to come in Maruti Van. In those days a Maruti Van, red colour, I still remember. He is the one who has taken me to a discotheque for the first time in Taj in Delhi. I mean we were very young, we had kind of just gotten out of our adolescent age and we met. He was part of Barry John’s group for some time.”
Manoj added, “We used to share cigarettes, beedis, whatever we could afford. He was always a charmer, always very popular with the girls in the group which we invaded. He always had his way with words.”
Back in 2016, SRK and Manoj interacted together at a press meet. As per NDTV, the ‘Raees’ star praised Bajpayee stating, “We have been working together since childhood in theatre and I have got to learn a lot from Manoj. We have done a lot of masti. I feel the proudest and I’m not being patronising, he is one of the finest actors and I wish him all the best.”
