Padma Shri Manoj Joshi Says Awards Never Interested Him

In an exclusive interview with the Hindustan Times, Joshi said: “Main Hindi filmon mein kaam karta hoon, aur 120 filmon mein mera kaam hai (I work in Hindi films, and have done 120 films). How does this mean I’m not a part of Bollywood? I’ve worked in films of various languages, too, and been associated with theatre for so long.”

“I don’t know why people initially thought so. Koi maane ya na maane, main toh iss industry ka ek hissa hoon (Whether anyone acknowledges it or not, I am a part of this industry)!”

“Is an actor ‘renowned’ only when he is a superstar? Actor actor hota hai, and it’s the work which makes one great. I’ve never hired any PR agency for publicity, and never aspired to that in my life.”

Joshi: “Awards never interested me”

Joshi concluded with the statement that, “Paan-masala waale awards ki mujhe padhi hi nahi hai (These award shows, which are mostly sponsored by tobacco companies, have never interested me).”

“Mujhe woh award ya nomination mile ya na mile, koi farak nahi padhta (Makes no difference to me if I get those awards, or nominations, or not)! Is there any honour bigger than [the Padma Shri]?”
