Sanjay Pandey told- How to handle stardom?
Regarding handling stardom, Sanjay Pandey said, ‘When there is a lack of roots, it becomes very difficult to handle stardom. It is said that if your wall is unpaved, it will fall even with a light rain. Our walls are strong. We have come from the theatre. We have been given that sacrament. We have planted a broom on the stage. We carried the burden. We have come with a lot of hard work, so we think that we should bow down before what we are getting. Today’s generations get it a little early, so they do not appreciate it.
What did Sanjay Pandey say about Nirhua and their friendship?

In such a situation, regarding his friendship, the actor said, ‘Dinesh ji is a very positive person. Negative thoughts do not enter his mind far and wide. I have seen very few positive people in my life. Dinesh lives far away from the spoons in Bhojpuri, that’s why I was able to get close to him because there is no wall of spoons between him and me. Our thoughts meet.’
Talking about the specialty of Nirahua (Dinesh lal yadav Nirahua), Sanjay said, ‘Nirhua is the only actor of Bhojpuri, who has earned from where he has earned. He is running the production house ‘Nirhua Entertainment’, under whose banner he made big budget films like ‘Border’. Its budget was only three crores.

There has never been a desire to take them, they have always been giving to people. He has helped so many people that he never says that I have helped Fala.
