Born in Belwa, a small village in Narkatiaganj, Bihar, Bajpayee aspired to be an actor since his childhood.

He moved to New Delhi at the age of seventeen and went to Satyawati, then Ramjas College, University of Delhi. Bajpayee had heard of the National School of Dramatic Arts from actors such as Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah, so he applied. He was rejected three times and wanted to kill himself afterwards. He then did the workshop of director and acting trainer Barry John after the suggestion of actor Raghubir Yadav. Impressed by Bajpayee’s acting, John hired him to help him with his teaching. After that, he applied to the National School of Dramatic Art for the fourth time and they offered him a teaching position at the school instead.

Bajpayee was married to a girl from Delhi, but divorced during her period of struggle. He met actress Shabana Raza, also known as Neha, right after her first film Kareeb (1998). The couple married in 2006 and they have a daughter.
