Manoj Bajpayee doesn’t want to live in Mumbai post retirement: I like mountains

Actor Manoj Bajpayee recently opened up about his retirement plans during a recent interview. The actor, who moved from Bihar to Maximum City Mumbai decades ago, said that although he loves Mumbai, he would not like to live here after quitting showbiz. 


Speaking to Curly Tales, the actor said he doesn’t want to live in a mansion in Mumbai, but instead hopes to move to the mountains after retirement. 

When asked where does he want to live ultimately, he said, “Mountains, ek choti si jagah kahi pe li hai. Ek chota sa ghar banau. Koi mansion nahi. Main apna old age yaha nahi guzarna chahunga” (I want to move to the mountains. I have already taken a place somewhere. I want to make a small house somewhere, no mansion for me. I don’t want to spend my old age here). It (Mumbai) will be a city for my daughter, not me.”
