Manish Paul: 'With me, even Ranvir opened up'

By HT

New Delhi, June 28 -- Having hosted the last three seasons of a dance reality show, and now being called back to pep up yet another edition, actor Manish Paul might seem like the 'indispensible' factor of the show.

The 32-year-old, however, doesn't want to think that way. "No one is indispensable, at least I never say that... I believe in staying grounded, and let my work speak for myself," says the Delhi-boy, who'll now be seen hosting the show with Ranvir Shorey.

TV actor Drashti Dhami and Ranvir, incidentally, drew a lot of flak across social media for lack of "spontaneity", post which Drashti was replaced by Paul. Though there's a strong buzz about Ranvir on his way out, too, Paul refutes it saying, "He's very much on the show. In fact, sab bol rahein hain ki Ranvir khul gaya mere saath."

And what about ego issues, considering Paul's like a 'veteran' of the show? "There are no insecurities between us... we are having fun hosting it," he assures.    

A pro at rib-tickling oneliners, Paul doesn't want to talk about where all Drashti could have gone wrong. "She's a great friend, and I am not here to judge anybody. In fact, I feel sad for her actually... I think she was doing well," says the Micky Virus (2013) actor, who's now straddling between this show and the post production of his next release. "If all goes well, I might even start shooting for my third Bollywood film by mid August," he reveals.
