Manoj Bajpayee laments being underpaid in Telugu films

Mumbai: National award winning actor Manoj Bajpayee, who also does Telugu films apart from his power-packed performances in Bollywood, says he doesn`t get paid enough down south considering his efforts.

"I have done three-four Telugu films. Some of them are successful in Andhra Pradesh and have created quite a ripple there. But each and every penny that I charge working in those films is actually less as compared to the hard work it demands from me," Manoj told reporters.

"It is not that I murmur those (Telugu) lines. I mug them up and I rehearse and rehearse. It is a very tedious job. They should understand that," added the actor, whose last Telugu hit was ‘Komaram Puli’.
