Book-Recco-Manoj-Bajpai

We asked the Gangs of Wasseypur and Sonchiriya actor to recommend three books on cinema that every film aspirant should read. Here’s what’s on Manoj Bajpayee’s bookshelf:

‘An Enemy of the People’ by Henrik Ibsen

Book-Recco-Manoj-Bajpai

New actors should make it a habit to read plays and work on the scenes. There can’t be a better choice than Ibsen as his characters and plots are still so relevant.

‘Rashmirathi’ by Ramdhari Singh Dinkar

Book-Recco-Manoj-Bajpai

Read either this or any other poem or poet. Poem recitation gives you a good sense of rhythm, diction, speech and the importance of words in dialogue.

‘Many Lives, Many Masters’ by Brian Weiss

Book-Recco-Manoj-Bajpai

It’s essential to have clarity about the uncertainty and insecurities that come with the choice to be an actor. These books give you a deep insight about the mind and how it’s important to not take success and failures to your heart. Start with these books, but reading, watching and living are the three best things an actor can do with an open mind.
