Some actors weild the paintbrush, while others exercise their vocals chords. But actor Manoj Bajpai doesn't see himself venture into either fields as he believes painters and singers are born talented - and not created.

"I love paintings, but I believe painters are not created, they are born. The same applies to music. I tried my hand at singing, but failed everytime. I have realised that every person is born to do a special task, I am born to act while these painters are born to paint," the 42-year-old actor said here while inaugurating a painting exhibition.

Meanwhile, Manoj, who had two releases "Aarakshan" and "Lanka" in 2011, has a busy calendar this year.

"First is 'Chittagong Uprising', distributed by Anurag Kashyap and Sunil Bohra. Then there is 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. I still have to work out other projects but in all, there are expected to be at least four of my releases this year," said the National award-winning actor.

He first won the National award for best supporting actor for his performance in "Satya", and his second award came as a special jury trophy for his work in "Pinjar".

Manoj started his career in 1997 with "Tamanna" and went on to do films like "Satya", "Shool", "Zubeidaa", "Pinjar", "Veer Zaara" and "Raajneeti".
