Manoj Bajpayee, not too long ago, opened up a few memorable incident from the 1999 Filmfare Awards. The 55-year-old added that he was nominated for Finest Actor in a Supporting Function alongside Salman Khan. A fast recap — Manoj Bajpayee was chosen for his position, Bhiku Mhatre, in Satya. Oh, and, Salman Khan gained the trophy for portraying Aman Mehra in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. In a dialog with Pinkvilla, the actor was requested whether it is true that, whereas receiving the award, Salman had stated that Manoj Bajpayee deserved it. To this, he answered, “Bahut badi sachai. Kyuki hum log the vaha pe. Aur jab naam announce hua tha to jitne log the vaha pe sab naraaz ho gaye the. Aur log khade hokar ke chilla rahe the ‘Bhiku Mhatre, Bhiku Mhatre.’ [It’s true. Because we were both there. And when the name was announced, everyone was upset. People were standing up and shouting ‘Bhiku Mhatre, Bhiku Mhatre.’]”

Manoj Bajpayee continued, “Aur Salman Khan jab upar gya to Salman ne, very gracious of him, jaake bola ki pta nahi mujhe kyu diya inhone. Yeh deserve toh Manoj [Bajpayee] karta hai. He stated that aur vo bolne ke liye bahut hello large-hearted hona pdta hai aapko. And Salman did that. I actually felt good ki trade mein kuch aise log bhi hai. Jabki mujhe greatest appearing in critics’ award mila tha (on the) Filmfare. [Salman went to the stage and said, “I don’t know why they picked me. Manoj deserves this.” He said that, and it takes a lot of large-heartedness to say that. Salman did that. I really felt good that there are people like him in the industry. Even though I received the award for best acting in critics’ at the Filmfare Awards.]”
