I will never work with Ram Gopal Varma: Manoj Bajpai

The rift between the mentor and the actor seems to run deep with Bajpai saying that he has no desire to work with Varma again.

"We have mutually decided never to work again. There is not bitterness and it is not that we are not on speaking terms. But mentally and emotionally there is no desire left in me to reunite with Ramu again," Bajpai told PTI in an interview.
The actor bagged the National award for the best supporting actor for his role as Bhiku Mhatre in the film about Mumbai underworld and later worked in 'Road' but soon parted ways with Verma over creative differences.

However, it was rumoured earlier that the duo had decided to let bygones be bygones and start afresh,however Bajpai denies they will be working together again.
"I don't see it happening again. At least not in the near future," says the actor.
Bajpai who began his career with television serial 'Swaabhimaan' had appeared in several small roles in films like 'Droh Kaal' and 'Bandit Queen' before he received a big break with RGV's 'Satya' in 1998.

The film made him a household name, paving way for critically acclaimed films like 'Zubaida', 'Shool', 'Pinjar' and Raykesh Omprakash Mehra's 'Aks', where he shared screen space with Amitabh Bachchan.
The actor will next be seen in Prakash Jha's multi-starrer political drama 'Rajneeti' but has no plans to enter the field himself.

"Politics is not my cup of tea," said Bajpai.
Talking about his experience while working with Jha, the actor said, "We both come from the same place in Bihar so we had great tuning. Prakash is a great director and knows how to get the best from his artistes."
Bajpai was last seen in Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Jail'.
