Manish Paul: Fiction shows are not creatively satisfying

He has the gift of the gab and makes full use of it! Popular TV anchor Manish Paul, now set to host India’s Got Talent 4, says his strength lies in making sense out of nonsense

Manish says he avoids fiction shows as they restrict his creative freedom.As an actor and performer, Manish Paul is multi-faceted. The star comedian has bagged a new show in his kitty – India’s Got Talent 4. “It is the way I talk,” he replied, adding: “Making sense out of nonsense is my strength, and it does take a lot of effort to do it. I love talking, I can make fun of anybody without intending to hurt anyone. I truly think this is my strength.”

He feels his job as a host of reality shows, live events and award functions is challenging. “People think it is very easy to go on stage and just talk. But it’s not like we can just go and stick to a script. It is important to innovate and improvise. We have some brilliant writers in all the shows, but one has to be careful not to offend anyone. If Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is present in a show, we can’t crack any and every joke on him. There has to be limited mazaak (humour) and masti (fun). Even with Shahrukh Khan, a limit has to be maintained,” added the 30-year-old, who has been a radio jockey earlier.

Manish got his first major break as an anchor with Wheel Ghar Ghar Mein. Post that, he replaced Jay Bhanushali as anchor on Zee TV’s dance reality show Dance India Dance, and even anchored Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar. He is currently hosting the fifth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. A Delhiite by birth, Manish has been in Mumbai since 2005. He stepped into the acting world with TV show Ghost Bana Dost, and followed it up with shows like Chhoona Hai Aasmaan, Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi and Pyaar Mein Twist. But the actor doesn’t want to venture into fiction content again. “I don’t want to demean fiction shows. But I love doing what I am currently doing. I am what I am on reality shows and live shows. Fiction shows are not creatively satisfying for me. I didn’t enjoy them much,” he said.

On India’s Got Talent 4, which will go on air in September, he will share the stage as a host with comedian Cyrus Sahukar.
