NEW DELHI: Host and actor Maniesh Paul, who has made a thriller short film titled 'What If', says he doesn't make efforts to break an image. Instead, he just does what the role of the character requires.
Maniesh is widely known in the industry for his wit and humour on screen but with 'What If', which was shot on a phone, was seen in quite an intense avatar, which is very unfamiliar to his fans.
When asked if he thinks it'll help to break his "fun-loving guy" image? Manish said in an interview, "I feel as an actor I do not make efforts to break the image. Yes, people know me plenty for the fun and comedy I do on screen, and loads of hosting."
The actor added, "But, yes, sometimes when, as an actor, I sign a project I just take it up and whatever role it requires I attempt to do that. So, it's not that I keep in mind that I want to break an image. It's about whatever role comes to me."
The short film is co-directed by Kartik Singh and Maniesh himself. The film released on the youtube channel of Manish Paul and Jio Studios both.
