MUMBAI : Manoj Bajpayee, a renowned actor in Indian cinema, has opened up about the challenges he and his wife, Shabana Raza, faced due to their inter-faith marriage. In his biography, Manoj shared that while his family may have had concerns about their different religions, they chose not to express any disagreement openly.

The biography, titled Manoj Bajpayee: The Definitive Biography, written by Piyush Pandey, discusses how Manoj and Shabana convinced their families about their marriage. The couple had been committed to each other for years before their wedding, with Shabana introducing Manoj to her family and Manoj subtly indicating his relationship to his family.

Manoj's family, particularly his parents, may have been worried about Shabana's religion, but they did not show any sadness or express any disagreement openly. In contrast, Shabana's family accepted the marriage wholeheartedly, being open and progressive about inter-faith marriages.

Despite the challenges, Manoj and Shabana's relationship grew stronger over the years. They decided to get married suddenly to legalize their relationship, especially when they needed a marriage certificate for a home loan. The couple had been living together before marriage, and the need to formalize their relationship arose due to practical reasons.

Manoj's close friend, actor Harsh Chhaya, mentioned that the couple's wedding was planned hastily, and even he was unaware of their plans until he read about it in the newspapers. Manoj's mother also revealed that they were not aware of the wedding plans until shortly before the ceremony.

On the work front, Manoj Bajpayee had a successful 2023 with his film Joram receiving critical acclaim. He also appeared in other OTT films and is gearing up for the release of the third season of his popular web series, The Family Man. Shabana Raza, known as Neha in her acting days, was last seen in the 2009 film Acid Factory and has not appeared in any films since then.

Manoj and Shabana's journey is a testament to their love and commitment, overcoming challenges with understanding and respect for each other's backgrounds.
