Speaking on the path of acting for more than four decades, Manosh Bandyopadhyay  said, “Honestly, in the path of acting for a long time, the love of the audience seems to be absolute. 

The audience has expressed their love by watching my performance, I am still soaking in the love of the audience. I haven’t done anything in my life other than acting. I haven’t even tried to do anything else. 

But the artists involved in acting in this country are not properly evaluated. Artists are given posthumous honors after death, but the artist does not get the respect he deserves to survive. The subject has been bothering me a lot lately. Even then, I am an actor, this is my pride.”
