We know him as the funny man who has been the anchor of super hit shows like Zee TV’s DID L’il Masters and Hero Honda Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar and also as the emcee of numerous television award functions. Manish bagged the Best Anchor award for Zee TV’s DID L’il Masters this year.
To add to his joy his long standing wish of performing at an awards function came true this year at the 4th Boroplus Gold Awards 2011. Reports have it that Manish had the audience in splits as he took to the stage and paid a comical dance tribute to his favorite movie star, Akshay Kumar. Manish carried off the colorful “Tees Maar Khan” costume with panache and spoofed the Khiladi Kumar’s inimitable style, replete with the actor’s trademark gimmicky stunts!Manish said, “I’ve always had this urge to shake a leg while hosting Dance India Dance but never got the opportunity. I have never been taken seriously as a dancer and I was dying to prove everybody wrong by putting my best foot forward in my debut stage act. I loved the response of the crowd at the cremeony … I hope the TV audiences enjoy it just as much!”
Way to go, Manish! Till date, we’ve only seen the comedian in you, but now we guess producers of celebrity dance reality shows might just make a beeline at your doorstep.
