Actor Manoj Bajpayee’s wife Shabana, who has taken a sabbatical from work, was offered to play Manyata Dutt’s character in the Sanjay Dutt biopic. The actress however turned down the offer owing to her changed priorities — her daughter. Speaking about his wife’s decision, the actor said, “She was not planning to make a comeback. She was offered this role but she said no because she wants to spend time with our daughter. She has done a commercial recently though. She is open to doing a shoot as long as it lasts just a few days, but the Dutt biopic required more dates.” If given a chance, Manoj says he’d love to share screen space with his wife. “I would love to work with her. The day she comes back and ask me to do a film, I will do it. She has done a huge sacrifice for me and I owe it to her.”
