Manoj Bajpai, who has been acting for almost two decades, says that filmmakers should stop tempting him with good roles as now it's money that matters to him the most.

"At this point of time, money is the most important factor for me. I am at a stage today where I can tell people that if you have the money, then only take me in your film. It's high time that filmmakers stop tempting me with good roles and don't pay me," Manoj said in a group interview here.

"This change in priority is because I have completed two decades in this industry and I have done enough to prove myself. I have a family to support. When I came into the industry, money didn't matter to me. I was passionate about being an actor.

"One thing other than my family which makes me complete is my job. I don't claim to be a big star. I think I am nothing in front of a star," he added.

The versatile actor, known for playing strong roles in movies like "Satya", "Raajneeti" and "Gangs Of Wasseypur", will now try his hand at producing films. But in this case, he will not focus on money.

"I am getting into it because I want to promote good cinema. Whenever there will be a good script looking out for a producer, I'll go ahead and produce it. Starting a production house isn't a money-making business for me. I will be working for low-profit. I've waited all my life to see this time and now I am sick and tired of waiting at home for things to happen," he said.

kind of agree.. See Anupam Kher he is doing so many films with small roles and I assume with less money also .. success of film does not depend on him.. he is not blamed for failure .. he just does his work and move out and he is indeed a great actor.. so volume works..
