New Delhi, June 24 -- Manish Paul is known for his comic timing, and skills as a host, but the actor-host doesn't want to restrict himself only to the small screen.
Even though his debut film, Mickey Virus (2013), didn't do too well at the box office, Manish is determined to pursue his Bollywood dream.
"Everyone wants to grow, and do films eventually. Anyone saying otherwise is lying. It was my dream to do films, but I was never desperate. I believe a film chooses you, and not the other way around," says Manish.
At the moment, he is enjoying his stint on the tube. The 33-year-old will return to host of a dance reality TV show that he has been anchoring for the past three seasons.
Does he ever worry that his image as a host might overshadow his credibility as an actor? "I have hosted many shows and people love me for it. I can't expect people to call me an actor with only one release," says Manish.
